AVA is a one-stop-shop for all aspects of local volunteering. Our staff can support you with finding suitable volunteering opportunities as well as advising groups on taking on and managing volunteers. As a volunteer, you can work towards three awards - iVolunteer (age 5-11), Saltire (age 12-25) and the Aberdeenshire Volunteer Award (age 18+). Organisations can also work towards a nationally-recognised Volunteer-Friendly Award. Click on the links below.
