Scottish Water have been in touch with VAO to offer the services of their local staff, to volunteer and help deliver a short community volunteering project, here in Orkney.

Scottish Water’s employee volunteering programme was launched in spring 2011, and in the last year alone more than 500 Scottish Water employees have taken part in their volunteering programme.

Employees are supported to carry out volunteering on week days and during office hours. Unfortunately they don’t have a budget but they do have enthusiastic employees who love to make a difference for others.

If you have an idea for a practical, non-fund raising activity that Scottish Water could complete in 1 day, please contact Fiona Burley at Scottish Water with as much detail as possible. Fiona will be happy to answer any questions you have and would love to have a chat with you about your proposal.
