BRECHIN INFORMATION HUB
Volunteer Role: Are you a people person? Are you able to chat with people in an easy and friendly manner? Are you happy to make phone calls on behalf of others? If this sounds like you and you are able to give one Tuesday afternoon every 4-6 weeks, then you might be the right person to help run a new Information Hub.
From 11th September 2018 until the end of March 2019, in partnership with Brechin Community Food Pantry, we will be trialling an Information Hub for all residents in Brechin. We are aiming to run the hub on a weekly basis to start with - every Tuesday from 12pm-4pm.
We heard from people in Brechin that a physical presence in the centre would be beneficial to help access information around: community groups, activities, pensions/attendance allowance, community alarm, transport options etc. as well as signposting to other services in the area.
As such, we have already started collecting the necessary information from the steering group along with support from other organisations in the area. We now need to find the right team willing to give their time to provide this valuable support service.
For further details or to apply for the role, please contact:
