Vintage Vibes is an amazing city-wide charitable partnership between two longstanding Edinburgh charities, Space and LifeCare. We’re on the lookout for a new Service Co-ordinator to help us tackle loneliness in the city’s older people through creating fantastic friendships.
RESPONSIBLE TO: Operations Manager – Vintage Vibes
LOCATION: Space @ The Broomhouse Hub, with agreement to also work from home, 525 Ferry Road, LifeCare offices in Stockbridge, or other such location as we consider necessary.
PURPOSE OF THE JOB
Edinburgh is the loneliest city in the UK for older people. Vintage Vibes is a fresh approach to tackling loneliness in Edinburgh. We put together volunteers with people over 60 (called our VIPs), who are matched based on shared interests, to tackle isolation and loneliness through creating long-lasting friendships.
As our new Service Co-ordinator you will:
• Work city-wide meeting fantastic VIPs and volunteers in order to create and support 1:1 friendships.
• Make a difference to Edinburgh’s isolated older people by celebrating individuality, friendship and positivity
• Respond to evolving VIP and volunteer needs through short-term additional support, signposting and additional engagement opportunities.
• Contribute to continual exciting and innovative service developments as part of a fun and fresh thinking team.
