Our volunteers help with a wide range of everyday jobs like administration, leaflet & poster distribution and fundraising to assist in making Miscarriage Support self sufficient. If you are thinking about becoming a volunteer here are some of the ways that you can help us to provide our service.
Counsellors & Telephone Counsellors
Our client group are the most important to us and we like to offer our clients the best possible care and support we can provide. That is why we prefer our volunteer counselors’ to have experience of miscarriage and to be trained or are currently training towards a Diploma in Person-centered counselling or are training in advice & guidance through our training centre.
We offer specialised miscarriage counselling training for our counsellors’ alongside their counselling diploma, although we have a very limited number of positions for face-to-face counselors. However, volunteers who are interested in counselling with us are asked to send a current CV and a supporting letter outlining why they would like to become a volunteer counselor with SCIM. If selected you are offered a placement or your name can be placed on our waiting list if we have no positions available.
Other ways you can help:
- Friends of Miscarriage Support
- Set up a group of Miscarriage Friends in your area and become part of a group who meet on a regular basis to share experiences and offer each other some understanding and support.
- Raising awareness / Information services
- Help us to distribute information in your area to GP surgeries and hospitals right acrossScotland.
If you would like more information on how to assist Miscarriage Support in providing any of the above services we would be happy to discuss things with you.
