Volunteers Wanted!

27 Jul 2015

We are urgently seeking volunteers to help socially isolated older people participate in activities at home or in the community!

If you are an enthusiastic and patient person with good communication skills we would love to have you join our dynamic team of volunteers on our Community Links Project.  

Our volunteers act as befrienders to older people, visiting weekly or fortnightly, taking them out for a walk, visiting local cafés, going shopping, encourage them to pursue new hobbies or reinvigorate past interests or simply spending time chatting to them their own homes.  

We have lots of opportunities in Midlothian. We offer full training, travel and other expenses and support. Volunteering is a very positive rewarding experience and you can really make a difference to someone’s life so please get in touch! 

We would be delighted to hear from you on 0131 660 1216, or e mail
