For volunteers aged 50+ in Stirling and Clackmannanshire


The RSVP Schools programme has volunteers in several schools across Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire.  Volunteers support school pupils with their learning on a 1:1 basis, and in small groups, helping students with confidence, social schools, and capability in school.

We recognise that having an older role model in the classroom can aid children’s progress in school. The tasks usually include reading, arithmetic, arts and crafts, music, school trips and more.
