Arts & Crafts Group Facilitator

  • VO44426


Description

Caledonia Housing Association has 8 Sheltered Housing Schemes across Dundee providing accommodation for older people. Each Housing Scheme is very much a small community and our volunteer programme aims to increase the variety of social activities available to our tenants.

We are recruiting friendly and sociable volunteers to facilitate Arts & Crafts groups for our tenants. We are looking for volunteers with a broad knowledge and the ability to share skills at all levels. This could be making greeting cards, knitting, making decorations or other interesting and stimulating craft activities you can come up with. We estimate that group sizes will be between 4 and 8 people.

Organisation aims and objectives

Caledonia Housing Association provides sustainable homes and a range of services for its tenants. The majority of its tenants are older people, from retirement age up. The volunteer programme is designed to support services for older people or those disadvantaged through disability or ill-health, living in the Dundee area.
