SOS Programme

We organise an annual programme of SOS events from March to October to help with garden clearance and maintenance for those most in need. These events are held on weekdays and weekends with small groups of volunteers. They form a core part of what we do as a charity.

This year we are aiming to scale up our SOS programme by recruiting key Voluntary SOS Team Leaders to coordinate and supervise individual SOS events. These volunteers will have strong horticultural knowledge and good organisational and communication skills. If you’re interested in finding out more about either volunteering for an SOS or becoming a Voluntary SOS Team Leader, please call Sue on 0131 347 0529 or email her at
