What exactly is a Community Adventurer?
A significant barrier for older people contributing to their community is lack of confidence & self-belief (amplified by isolation & deprivation). Vintage Vibes has been awarded funding by Comic Relief for the Community Adventurers project.
This is a fresh approach will focus on matching lonely older and younger folk from low-income areas based on shared interests to create true friendships, build confidence and then working with you, our Community Adventurer, to support the friendship to engage in their local community and local causes through volunteering.
This role, based at the Broomhouse Centre, involves 14hrs p/w working alongside a fantastic, but small, team of 2 Service Co-ordinators, a Development Manager and wonderful volunteers to deliver a quality, personalised and responsive beneficiary‐led service to older people in Edinburgh so that VIPs from low income areas are re-engaged with their local communities.
You will explore community based opportunities (from community cafes to local allotments) alongside supporting and supervising the VIPs and volunteers in the delivery of the project. In addition, the role includes 7 hours p/w administrative support for volunteer and VIP processing, communication support and other ad hoc duties.
