Vintage Vibes is an amazing city-wide charitable partnership between two longstanding Edinburgh charities, Space and LifeCare. We’re expanding our team and are on the lookout for two new Friendships Coordinators to help us tackle loneliness in the city’s older people through creating fantastic friendships.

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 one of our new Friendships Coordinators 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.
