Vintage Vibes

To tackle isolation and loneliness using friendly volunteers to offer long-term friendships and the chance to be more socially connected.

Current opportunities

Vintage Vibes is a fresh way of tackling isolation and loneliness among the over 60s in Edinburgh – who we call our VIPs. Our goal is to tackle isolation and loneliness and to encourage VIPs to become more active in their local communities. Tasks include: Visiting your VIP once a week for home visit, walks, café visit. Creating a wonderful friendship with them.

This is a role that is all about finding and telling interesting stories. We need someone who will help us find great stories about our VIPs, our volunteers and also about issues surrounding isolation and dementia. You'll also be finding interesting and valuable information to create tips and tricks for our volunteers, such as free things to do with VIPs in the city. You'll be looking at new methods to spread the word such as Instagram and Facebook Live. You'll be pulling together blog posts.
