Volunteering with JASS

Alongside our Staff team, we also have a committed team of volunteers who help with a variety of tasks. Without these individuals we would not be able to deliver the JASS program and so we thank them for all the hard work they put in throughout the year.

If you would like to volunteer with JASS please get in contact to see how your skills could be best utilised.


Distributors

In order to deliver a comprehensive training package in other parts of the UK, we work with a small number of distributors. The areas currently covered are the West Midlands, North Yorkshire, and Lancashire. If you would like to become a JASS distributor in your local area please contact us.


Funders & Supporters

Having secured Scottish Government Enterprise Funding, FOTA developed JASS in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council who provided educational expertise. We value our ongoing partnership with CEC who continue to support the development and delivery of JASS.
