Are you interested in supporting people to be engaged in their local community? Do you have a background or interest in supporting a local organisation with their financial responsibilities? Are you looking for ways to support people get the best out of life? And help them learn, grow and make friends? This volunteer opportunity could be for you!
The Friends Shed is for people aged 18- 35 years old who need one to one support in their daily lives and are looking for an opportunity to meet others for shared activities and experiences.
We meet twice and week in Lanark and Hamilton and share many activities together where we can learn, have fun and get to know one another.
We started in June 2022 after a long time planning what we wanted to see. We were successful in getting funding for 6 months which has allowed us to employ 2 people to run the sessions in conjunction with our Chair who is the inspiration behind the Friends Shed.
We know there is a need for the Friends Shed – we know that people who need a higher level of support have limited opportunities in Clydesdale. We are trying to do something about that!
We operate with a small committee with a Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and a couple of ordinary members. We really need someone who can be our Treasurer. Having similar experience would be helpful – but we are learning together as a committee – so having a genuine interest in supporting people is more important.
We meet every month for around 2 hours and have occasional correspondence in between meetings for any business that cannot wait until the next meeting.
