Food Train is an award winning voluntary organisation, providing practical support services to older people across Scotland, helping them to eat well, live well and age well. Our Dumfries and Galloway branch currently offers 4 services to older people: grocery shopping, home support, befriending and our innovative Meal Makers neighbourhood meal sharing project. We are seeking an outstanding individual to help develop these services in the Nithsdale locality.
We are looking for a suitably experienced and enthusiastic individual committed to the voluntary sector and older people’s services. Applicants will have excellent communication skills and a sound understanding of volunteer management and service delivery. The ideal candidate will have experience of successful people based project development and partnership working in the voluntary sector.
This project has developed from work we are doing with people in the area around Brechin and Edzell to develop more opportunities for older people, including activities that can benefit the whole community. This is part of a wider project: Rural Wisdom is working with people in communities across Scotland and Wales to look at how rural communities work for people as they get older.
This new project is complementing all the good work and activities happening in this area. The aim is to increase the social connections for older people, including those who have additional disabilities or face other challenges, and other people who are, or are at risk of becoming, socially isolated.
There are several parts to the project:
The intention is that after a year or so people and community groups in the area will be able to take on the events and activities, such as taking turns to host these and working in partnership to plan and publicises what they do. The person working on this project will work alongside local people to plan how the Community Connections approach continues in the linger-term.
This project has links with a similar project that is being developed in the area around Brechin in Angus, also as a development from the Rural Wisdom work there. We are building links between the people working in each area. There will also be shared learning sessions and joint materials that tell other people what we are learning and doing in both projects.
The project is funded by the Greater Renfrewshire and Angus LEADER programmes as a co-operation project with a similar post in Eaglesham and the surrounding area in East Renfrewshire.
