Volunteer opportunities


To enable the Glasgow branch of the Riding Centre to continue the good work of its staff and volunteers, it is dependant on ongoing fund raising and support from volunteers. In November 2017 we saw the start of the 50th anniversary year of the Riding for the Disabled Association which is a great time to get involved in the celebrations and fund raising events.

A warm welcome is extended to anyone who wants to support the RDA including our many riders and parents/carers and other service users.

For anyone with a few hours to spare, the following Volunteer Opportunities are available. Volunteering opportunities are available during day time, evening hours and at weekends. Please note, experience with horses is not essential as full training will be given.

  • Riding Lesson support
  • General maintenance/DIY support
  • Stable management
  • Yard maintenance

Our riders are at the heart of the purpose of the centre, and we want to ensure that participant’s needs and wishes are likewise at the heart of how we plan and develop the centre and all the activities. To help us to achieve this we plan to form sub committees which will be made up of participants and volunteers and which will concentrate on issues such as fund raising, publicity, Communications and feedback from riders.

Please tell us about your experience of the service and how it can be improved.

In addition further to recent changes in the RDA Board membership we would also warmly welcome applications from anyone interested in joining the Board, particularly from any of our riders. Whilst we have a list of desirable areas of knowledge or expertise, including management, disability advocacy, communications, legal training and veterinary experience this list is not exhaustive and applications are invited from all.

 If you are interested please contact: volunteer@rdaglasgow.org or telephone 0141 945 1369
