There are loads of ways you can be a part of SuperTroop
Our holidays are reliant on volunteers to fundraise, staff the week, run the charity year-round, and provide activities and resources. This video gives you an idea of what it's like to volunteer on the week. If you want to volunteer, you can complete this application form but please note that our staff team is nearly full so we can't guarantee a spot in 2018.
Doing the holiday itself isn't possible for everyone though - below you can find out other ways to lend a hand, or you can make a donation.
Volunteering on the holiday is a challenging, exhausting but ultimately incredibly fun and fulfilling experience. We can guarantee you will make friends for life, while giving an extraordinary opportunity to a group of young people who have few chances to try new things or gain some independence. The holiday will give you valuable skills (teamwork, leadership, communication) and specific training (Makaton signing, first aid, crisis response) as well as paying for your PVG registration. To apply for a place, complete this application by Friday 1st December 2017
be a helper
Our holidays are staffed by volunteers at three levels. Helpers will be recruited from Fettes College - they provide one-to-one care. We also need group leaders and senior helpers - more experienced staff to support helpers and holiday activities. Complete the online form if you want to be involved
Donate an activity
During the holidays we need lots of fun stuff to enjoy. If you can donate by playing a gig for us, running a football workshop or creating an on-site nail spa, get in touch! We are also interested to hear from qualified volunteer bus drivers to take us on trips out.
donate some kit
We are a brand new holiday, so we've got to build up all the kit we need from scratch. If you can donate (clean, high quality) toys, arts & crafts materials, disability aids, or office supplies please do.
