Our statistics have revealed that 218,000 over 50s in Scotland say they feel lonely all or most of the time. As people get older, it can be harder to maintain social connections. Retirement, bereavement or moving somewhere new can leave people feeling lonely and isolated.
That's where you come in!
The Age Scotland Community Connecting Service aims to connect older people across Scotland to social groups and clubs in their local community.
As a Community Researcher, you'll help to identify and research groups and clubs around the country, updating our Community Connecting database with the most accurate and up-to-date information.
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a real difference. All volunteer assistance is greatly appreciated.
For more information please contact Ashley Marr, Age Scotland Friendship Manager at email: email@example.com or telephone: 03333232400.
Age Scotland is the national charity for older people. We work to improve the lives of everyone over the age of 50 so that people can love later life.
Experience required: If you have great attention to detail and know your way around Google and social media platforms- we'd love to hear from you!
We also ask Community Researchers to be able to research effectively and a reasonable knowledge and understanding of IT- but full training and ongoing support will be provided.
