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 communitylinks@volunteermidlothian.org.uk

Help local blind and partially sighted people get Online Today!

15 Jul 2015

Would you like to help people with sight loss explore the options of getting online? Could you share your knowledge and enthusiasm to help people engage with technology? You will show people how to use a computer, tablet or smart phone to get online, deliver group training and demonstrations and visit people in their home to help them with basic online skills.

We're looking for volunteers with great communication skills, patience and an interest in everyday computing technology to support local blind and partially people who are feeling isolated from the benefits of these technologies which we take for granted.

"I was a guy who loved his computer, I used Blackberry products and was into social media, but in 2011 I suddenly lost my sight. Thanks to RNIB, within a couple of months I had an opportunity to learn how to use a screen reader on my laptop with a tutor. Four years on, I have a new computer and the staff at RNIB Scotland have advised me on technology that I've found much easier to use and provided me with lots of advice. RNIB has been a great source of information and support."
