The New Buddies Network Officer, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, will lead our programme and will act as a social advocate for Renfrewshire’s minority groups. The officer will deliver a programme which will reduce isolation in our ethnic minority communities and improve the wellbeing of participants by increasing access to learning resources and reducing the barriers to social opportunities that have been described clearly by our target communities. The New Buddies Officer will lead an approach that amongst its aims will contain a commitment to sustaining a strong local advocacy role by encouraging participants to act as local advocates for their growing communities themselves.
Our New Buddies Network Officer will be aware of the needs to empower participants to build their skills and knowledge as well as share their collective experiences, which in turn will lead to a reduction in isolation levels reported by Renfrewshire’s ethnic minority groups and increased levels of wellbeing for all.
