Volunteering Opportunities

We re-achieved the Investing in Volunteers award in April 2021, showing we really value the amazing role that volunteers take in supporting our work. Our vision for a dyslexia-friendly Scotland will only be achieved with volunteer changemakers striving for dyslexia inclusion. 

We regularly recruit enthusiastic, determined and motivated volunteers to assist Dyslexia Scotland in a number of National and Branch roles. Please see our current opportunities below:

Branch Volunteers

Our branches aim to raise awareness and understanding of dyslexia by holding meetings which are open to the public.  Many of our branches are looking for more volunteers to help organise these meetings.  Could you spare a couple of hours a month to help? You don't need to be an expert, you just need to be willing to help out in any way you can - click here to find out a bit more about what's involved.  You can see all of our branches here

If you are interested in getting involved in one of our branches, please contact our National Development Officer, Lena Gillies at [email protected] or call 07703 183 548.


Your experience

Whatever role you are interested in, you’ll be helping to improve the lives of people with dyslexia across Scotland. In return, you can:

  • learn new skills
  • build your confidence
  • meet new people
  • challenge yourself
