    For over 50 years CHV has been volunteering with disadvantaged children across Edinburgh, giving kids and students a chance to get out and have a bit of fun! Think of us as a cross between a big brother scheme and a youth group. Volunteers organise and run evening, day and weekend activities which can involve anything from ice skating to swimming, pottery painting to games nights! All of the activities are offered at no cost to children and their families, or volunteers.
