Description

We are looking for a enthusiastic person to join our team here at St. Ninian's where we work with and support the families in the community. Your role is to assist in setting up an attractive lunch following our Healthy Eating Plan. This is a simple lunch and consists of homemade soup, sandwiches, drinks and fruit. We also take into account the various ages of the children attending, this includes the needs of
babies at different stages. We also take into account any allergies and other dietary requirements.

During lunch we also offer taster sessions and encourage the families to enjoy this opportunity. After lunch you will be doing the washing up and cleaning the kitchen for the next day with the help of another volunteer.

Organisation aims and objectives

We aim to support parents and their children under 5 years. In Mid Craigie many parents are unemployed resulting in low self esteem and self confidence. Juvenile crime is high. The local school, including the nursery department, has the highest exclusion rate in Dundee. We will provide activities for both children and parents designed to improve social wellbeing.
