This is an opportunity to directly inform and collaborate with agencies working to reduce suicide in Aberdeen. Community Planning Aberdeen* is working to improve mental wellbeing and has a project focused on raising awareness of how we can all make a difference to reducing suicide.
Improving mental wellbeing is a priority within the North, South and Central Locality plans and our communities through their Plans have identified ideas that could help reduce suicide and improve mental wellbeing.
We now need COMMUNITY CONNECTORS to help make sure the development of this project and the ideas for improvement continue to be informed by and are linked back to our communities.
As a Community Connector you will be the “connection” between the reducing suicide project and your community. You will be supported to provide updates to your Locality Engagement Group (LEG) or Priority Neighbourhood Partnership (PNP) meeting. For more information about the role of a Community Connector and the support that we will offer, please visit https://communityplanningaberdeen.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/Community-Connector.pdf
We anticipate that a Community Connector will commit around 3 hours per month at times flexible to suit each Community Connector.
Excellent support and relevant training is provided to all volunteers. Includes:
•An induction from your aligned Locality Lead, Communities Team, or associated organisation
•Training opportunities to support you in this role
• Support from your aligned Locality Lead, Communities Team, or associated Organisation as identified at induction
• Support from a Project Team (made up of partners from across the Community Planning Partnership)
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a difference for the community. All help is greatly appreciated.
