Are you looking for a new challenge? Or would like to give back to EOS?
We are looking for volunteers to help us to continue to support families dealing with eczema and help spread the world of what EOS does.
There are three volunteer roles available:
Admin Helping Hand – to assist with admin within the EOS head office in Linlithgow. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to gain work experience and be part of a dynamic team. More information on the role can be found here – Admin Helping Hand Role Description
Event Helping Hand – EOS runs events for families all over the UK and we are always looking for people to help us set up and deliver these events. If you could assist, these are usually held on weekends and are busy and fun filled. More information on the role can be found here – Event Helping Hand Role Description
Promotional Helping Hand – EOS is helping more families than ever, from all over the UK and something we commonly hear is ‘I wish I’d found out about you sooner’. If you would like to help spread the word on what EOS does and how we can help, this could be the role for you.

Davina volunteered with EOS earlier this year and shared her story about why she likes to give back.
Davina volunteered at one of the Eczema Outreach Support’s events for families earlier this year and said the experience has made her consider a career move.
Davina said: “I stumbled across EOS by accident after looking at the Children in Need website and seeing it was one of their supported charities. My husband has psoriasis and a relative’s baby has been struggling with eczema so it seemed like a good fit and a cause I wanted to help. Also with the events being at the weekend, it fit in with my free time from work.
“I went along to the Glasgow event and all the staff and other volunteers were so welcoming and friendly. The event was really well organised and there wasn’t the panic and rushing about I’ve experienced at other events.”
EOS family events include activities for children and separate talks for the parents. This event included a kids yoga session and Davina’s skill set came in handy.
She explained: “I am a laughter yoga leader and I did a session with the teenagers which was great. They really came out of their shells and joined in with the session.
“I got a lot from the day, getting to spend time with these brave young people that have a lot going on and were so knowledgeable about their condition and what they had to do to help their skin.
“I’ve been considering moving into education now and changing careers and volunteering just compounded that I love helping people.
“When you give some of your time or knowledge of experience in a voluntary setting, you get back so much. It makes you feel wonderful and it can be a bit addictive to know you are helping the community.”
