    If you were in St Johns Ambulance they might take you to an event from 16. otherwise not much chance.

    SJA do not operate in Scotland , i'm not sure what St Andrew's rules are with regard to 16 -18s and operational duties and it;s not sure about BRC either.

    Unfortunately for many 16 -18s the issues with under 18s supervision etc make it something which hard pressed charities have a habit of putting on the 'too hard' pile ...

    Is the volunteering for something in specific? YOu could always go down an alternate route (if the volunteering doesn't have to be specific) such as conservation or helping at brownies or even international volunteering (with ICS or Free the Children) I know they sound dull but having done them all i beg to differ! This may have not helped at all!!!

    You could volunteer with rainbows, brownies or guides.

    There are actually a few web resources that you could use to help you here.

    You could look at the #iWill campaign, which has a range of information aimed at young people wanting to volunteer.

    You could also look at something like Vinspired, which will recognise and reward you for your time.

    And as a personal plug, you could ring up your local youth club, who will always be happy to help a young person gain some experience, and have a helping hand. You will also get to do fun stuff.

    Hope this helps, and good luck!
