Drylaw Neighbourhood Centre is a SCIO charity based in Drylaw, Edinburgh. From young people to older adults, we run projects that build confidence and help to achieve positive changes within their community. Currently we run a supported community gardening scheme, several community groups and a youth work programme.
Our charitable aims and objectives are:
To develop the capacity and skills of people living in socially and economically disadvantaged areas in such a way that they are better able to identify, and help meet, their needs and to create active, flourishing communities. To run a Neighbourhood Centre, primarily for the benefit of Drylaw, Telford and other communities in North Edinburgh.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced development co-ordinator who will support the centre to offer a range of opportunities and activities for people within the community of Drylaw and Telford. Drylaw Neighbourhood Centre is a friendly and welcoming place that is highly valued by those that use it as well as the wider community.
We are looking for someone who will co-ordinate the activities of the centre, including staff and volunteers and who will work to build relationships with other local organisations as well as people in the local community who may benefit from the activities and services it can provide.
Charitable fundraising experience would also be beneficial to the role.
