We are looking for some new, enthusiastic volunteers who are keen to provide transport for our members to attend our Social Café. Our Social Cafes are open to those over the age of 65 and want to get out to socialise and be a part of the community.

You would be mainly helping with taking members to the café and back to their homes. However, you could also help in:

  • making teas and coffees for the members.
  • doing activities or assisting members with the activities.
  • socialise with our members.
  • setting up and clearing away.

In return, you will be supported with appropriate training and regular supervision sessions with the named contact, invites to volunteer events and expense reimbursements.

Organisation aims and objectives

We have several services in Fife which provide support to older people. We support older people to (re)connect with their community or help them share their experience and skills for the benefit of others. We help older people who have a range of long-term conditions which limit what they can do, while others are in good health but lack the resources required to live a full and active life. We also provide support to people who have significant caring responsibilities. We also support people to improve or manage their mental and physical health. Ways we help: • reduce isolation by helping you to participate in your community • connect with additional support and specialist services • realise your resilience and resourcefulness • focus on the change you want to achieve in your lives • share your skills and experience through volunteering
