Hello, we are a family living in the countryside near Glasgow (20 minutes hy train and bus). We need help as soon as possible. We can take couples or singles. Helpers must be able to work with minimum supervision.
The jobs we need doing are outside painting, digging and weeding and clearing a small patch of land to make a new garden space and some other similar jobs, which will be garden and outdoor based. We might need some help with indoor jobs such as putting up curtains, or some other manual type work so if you have practical skills this would help.
The jobs will take about 6 hours a day for 1 to 2 weeks.
We provide a small caravan and access to the kitchen and shower and wc. WiFi is available and you may have some access to the swimming pool.
We are a busy family and you will need to be able to fit in and be nice to children. Evening meals will be mixed. On some evenings we will cook for you and other evenings you will cook for us. On some evenings we will eat separately... more inside

This is a small charity based in the North East of Scotland. The Centre is situated next to Brucklay Castle and has approximately 25 acres of woodland and about 20 acres of pastureland. We have 14 horses, 26 dogs, 20 cats and 44 owls. So it is essential volunteers love animals and do not have allergies to animals. Experience with animals or working in woodland e.g chainsaw work, chopping wood etc.
We currently are looking for people with forestry skills for thinning our woodland, also people with joinery skills to help us to build new aviaries for the owls.

We require 3 or 4 volunteers to help us care for our animals some of which are used as therapy birds/animals for our work with the elderly and children and adults with special needs. We expect 25 hours work over 5 days in return for food and accommodation which is either in our yurt or in our 3 bed mobile home which also provides shower and toilet facilities and a small kitchen and living area.

We have a lovely home here in an absolutely idyllic location but it is time to be more green. Help us be more efficient. Would love a vegetable patch, a dyke, more recycling, would like to put in a wood burning hot tub, need trees cut and shown how to manage them so we can supply some of our own wood, and even to discuss an earthship. However right now we need to know how to manage our garden, we could be much better, we could plant the right herbs in the right places, we have a dark place that could maybe grow mushrooms, I wonder if hens or a goat are possibilities. We are GREEN in every sense of the word so ideas from an experienced exchanger would be great. We want to know - what else can we do????

We would also be interested in someone willing to do some house keeping, general house chores, food prepping/cooking and gardening, mainly day to day running of the house with ongoing projects outside.

The accommodation we offer is a caravan, so you can come yourself or we have ... more inside

Hello
I am looking for a fun loving female helper to assist me in enabling my daughter to get involved in different activities and help keep the house organised and clean. My daughter (14) has cerebral palsy and needs to be supported physically. She has a powerchair and standing frame. So keeping active through cycling, swimming, horse riding and pilates is particularly important. I would like a helper to work along side me to assist her to develop her fitness and skills. We would also work as a team to keep the bedroom and living areas clean and tidy. It would be 25hrs a week with two days off.
We live on the Black Isle in a beautiful rural location surrounded by farmland and 5 minutes from the beach. the skies are a source of entertainment and the scenary makes a photographer of anyone! We are equi-distant(7 miles)from quaint little villages which can be reached by bus or bike. There are energising walks along the beach or through woodland forests. It is great for cycling.

Looking for help July 1 - 14th and August 12th - September 28th. Lots of work in the trees - pruning, thinning, chopping and also making mushroom logs and foraging and using what we find. We grow vegetables so weeding and digging too. Have a table tennis table and welcome people who like to play! Have also been growing trees from seeds I collected and lots of vegetables growing.

You need to work 25 hours a week (and help at mealtimes) but when you work is flexible (for example you are welcome to go for a weekend to Inverness ) and in return you will get your food and a tent/Caravan and wifi!

We are 5 minutes from the Insch train station, 35 minutes from Aberdeen, and you can walk or bicycle to the village where there are shops and a friendly pub.

I tend to prepare food from scratch and like the idea of a simple sustainable life (with wifi). Vegetarians are welcome but we do eat some meat.

I am mainly interested in traveling, Forestry, cooking and and mushrooms. I al... more inside
