Volunteering at The Junction







We have a brilliant team of volunteers! A diverse bunch of individuals with a common desire to positively contribute to the support & services The Junction offers. We strive to ensure high quality volunteer experiences, which encourage both personal and professional development.

We are looking for one person for each of the following time slots:

Monday 3-7pm

Thursday 3-7pm

(clinical supervision sessions take place on Mondays or Wednesdays – times flexible)

If you would like us to send you our application pack, please email info@the-junction.org

There are various ways people can volunteer within The Junction:

Junction Youth Advisors – for 12 – 21’s. The Junction Youth Advisors (JYA) is a group of local young people who support The Junction to provide free accessible health and wellbeing services to their peers in Leith and North East Edinburgh

Volunteer Counsellors – over 21’s. Trained and experienced Volunteer Counsellors do a great job of supporting our clients. Through their commitment to The Junction we are able to offer more sessions, over more time slots, over more days

Board of Trustees – over 21’s. The Junction could not do the vital work they do without the support of the Board of Trustees who have overall responsibility for the organisation.

Specialist Volunteers – In the past we have had two qualified Reiki Practitioners volunteering their skills, and a Volunteer Yoga Tutor. Specialist Volunteers bring opportunities for young people (and staff) to explore new activities.

Fundraising Volunteers – We are always grateful for those individuals who choose to support our work by fundraising for The Junction, whether it’s through running a marathon or holding money raising events. We have been lucky to have the support of a range of Volunteer Fundraisers, like:

Kyle Morrison, students from Edinburgh CollegeThe Junctioneers and The Junction EH11’ers.
