Volunteering at Events

Come and volunteer at major events in Paisley and Renfrewshire.

Our event season is one of the best in Scotland, and we want your help to make it even better.

Volunteering is a great way to build skills and new experiences. It is also a great way of getting out and about, meeting new and like-minded people, and making a valuable impact in your community.

From our award-winning Paisley Halloween Festival and our delicious Paisley Food and Drink Festival to pipe band competitions, local celebrations, and Christmas events—there are plenty of great opportunities to get involved.

We have a range of roles available, and we’ll match you into a role that’s perfect for you. We’ll give you training and support, and if you’re eligible your hours will contribute towards a Saltire Award.

The opportunities available change depending on the event, but usually, we have roles in:

  • creative media
  • communications
  • site building
  • stewarding
  • event management
  • community building.

Volunteer at major events in Paisley and Renfrewshire and help create amazing experiences.
