Normal topicGrassmarket Community Project - Call for volunteers

The Grassmarket Community Project (GCP) provides learning opportunities to adults who have or are experiencing homelessness, abuse, addiction, poor mental/physical health, loneliness and social isolation. Embracing an asset-based approach, it provides free meals and skill-based activities to empower participants to re-connect and boost their self-esteem and social capital.

The GCP is looking for volunteers (ideally with excellent interpersonal skills) to join its Befriending Team, who reach out to the local communities' most vulnerable adults on a weekly basis. Each call acts as a vital lifeline for many. Each call is prearranged to dovetail with the availability of both the volunteer and member (including evenings and weekends). The calls can coincide with going out for a walk but this is optional.

If you feel you may be able to offer to support GCP in this way, please contact:
