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.

AVA Guide to Volunteering

This questionnaire will help us to match your desire to volunteer with opportunities that exist within organisations across Aberdeenshire and should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
