Description

The Buddy Club in Moredun runs for children and elderly people. Volunteers will need to help plan, prepare and supervise children's activities and engage with the children, many of whom face difficult challenges. Volunteers will also need to ensure that elderly group members are supported to take part in the activities. Volunteers should help staff to implement health and safety procedures, and to be aware of when it is appropriate to alert a staff member if concerns arise.

Organisation aims and objectives

Bethany Christian Trust exists to relieve the suffering and meet the long-term needs of homeless and vulnerable people. Our vision is that through Christian love in action homelessness will be reduced and vulnerable people empowered to live independently within society. Bethany operates services that take people from homelessness through to managing their own tenancy and building positive friendships.
