Current opportunities

Working in partnership with The Co op it has been reported that over 70% of people living in the UK have expressed that at some point in their lives they have experienced loneliness and/or Social Isolation. This can have a detrimental effect on health and wellbeing and we are looking to support those most at risk. This can be anyone 16+ for example New Mums, Individuals with Mobility Restrictions, Elderly, Individuals experiencing Bereavement/Empty Nest to name a few. This will be a volunteer led project with support from Community Connectors based in Dundee/Fife/Aberdeen/Inverness and Shetland. We are looking for individuals who are willing to give up a little of their time to re build service users confidence to re-engage into their local communities. Each service user will be supported for a 12 week period and will be sign posted to the relevant organisation as required. All training is provided which is fantastic for self-development! This is a new project with new staff and volunteers who are all extremely excited to be involved.
