G64 Community Support

To support COVID 19 request for assistance

Current opportunities

Do you live in the G64 area of East Dunbartonshire? Then this role could be for you. The role of the coordinator would entail receiving email referrals for assistance i.e. shopping, prescription collection and passing this out to the volunteer teams via WhatsApp. You would be required to keep accurate records of volunteer activity and manage the finances of the organisation as part of the Coordinating team..

The role of Volunteers within our community was vitally important. It is recognised that support is required for a number of vulnerable and elderly people so Community Support organisations are available to provide support to those who need it most. Opportunities exist to help with administration, coordinating volunteers, shopping, driving to medical appointments, light gardening, check-in calls and collecting prescriptions for those who struggle to go out and about. There are many activities you can get involved in to help make a difference in your local community. If you have an hour or two to spare each week why not join your local Community Support organisation

G64 Community support is a community wide partnership providing support to vulnerable residents. Our organisation is supported by local community organisations, East Dunbartonshire Voluntary Action, and OPAL East Dunbartonshire information Helpline operating in the Bishopbriggs, Auchinairn and Torrance area. We are looking for a secretary to deal with any correspondence, take minutes of any meetings and liaise directly with our chair to ensure the smooth running of the group. This will includes sending invitations and settings up virtual meetings, and supporting the other trustees to run the group efficiently.
