Big Hearts Supporters
Our ‘Big Hearts Supporters’ initiative, the first of its kind in Scottish football, enables any Hearts fans to get involved with our charity in a manner than suit them.
The Volunteering Programme seeks to use the time, skills and expertise of Big Hearts Supporters to make a significant difference to the most vulnerable within our community.
Every year over 160 supporters volunteer across the community. In the past 12 months, they have completed almost 4,600 hours to support groups who need our help most.
A range of varied and flexible opportunities are available, from regular groups support to one-off events.
Big Hearts works closely with other charities and organisations to create partnerships which see our volunteers representing Big Hearts across a varied range of roles in the community.
