Glasgow’s Helping Heroes

GVU Aides Required!




Glasgow’s Helping Heroes is recruiting Aides for our annual Glasgow’s Veterans United (GVU) course and we need you!

Are you interested in the opportunity to sit a SFA level 1 coaching certificate?

Do you have up to fourteen hours a week for twelve weeks to volunteer as a GVU Aide?

It’s essential that you are available 1230-1630 every Thursday and 1230-1630 every other Tuesday and there is an expectation of around an hour a day on social media to respond to comments and provide updates on the comings and goings of the course. You may also be needed to volunteer for alternative hours or days for different events.

The Training

Full training will be provided before the course starts and further external training may be provided to those who wish to gain further qualifications in mentoring.

The Course

GVU is a course to aid veterans with their wellbeing and lifestyle choices. It is a course that is aimed at those that struggle with their mental health, addictions or social isolation and will teach the attendees to address any negative attitudes they may have and show them how their actions affect themselves but their families and friends too. Participants will talk about these issues with peers in a safe environment before channelling their energy into exercise through football coaching, which will lead to the opportunity to sit a SFA level 1 coaching certificate.

We hope that the course will allow the veterans time to examine their lifestyle choices and challenge their perceptions while facilitating time with peers and the chance to learn valuable skills for the future.

The Role

So you now know what the guys on the course will be doing, what is involved for the Aides? You are the voice of reason for the course participants, you’ll listen and respond to any issues that they can will the full support of GHH staff.  You will be the first point of contact for any issues or concerns that arise.
