PSYV is the Police Scotland Youth Volunteering programme that aims to strengthen relationships with young people, break down barriers and promote ways to make Scotland's communities safer. We're open to applications from young people aged 13 – 17 that wish to gain an insight into policing in Scotland and want to do something positive in their communities.
Each PSYV group consists of 24 young people who each give up their own time to volunteer on their communities. As a youth volunteer, you would be expected to complete the PSYV initial training programme which will prepare you for attending local and national volunteering events. The training contains multiple subjects across three units.
- About the programme
- Operational PSYV training
This training and subsequent local 'sessions' take place at a local venue on a weekly or fortnightly basis. During these sessions, youth volunteers will take part in additional training, educational inputs from the police and partner agencies as well as preparing for upcoming volunteering opportunities.
If you live in Scotland and are aged between 13-15 register your interest. You must attend weekly sessions and attend regular volunteering events in your community and occasionally other parts of the country.
Discover more about the training and support you will receive if you are selected as a Police Scotland Youth Volunteer. If your local group are recruiting, your local coordinator will be in touch to discuss the recruitment process. Please note that not all groups are actively recruiting and spaces are limited in all groups due to the popularity of the programme.
Minimum age: 13
Applications for Adult Volunteers are accepted all year round however not all groups will have space. PSYV groups recruit for Youth Volunteers in August/September each year and do not take on anyone aged 16 or 17.
Volunteers (aged 13-25) taking part in this opportunity are eligible to claim Saltire Awards hours for their activity.
