The Eric Liddell Community is undergoing a period of growth, expansion and change in the delivery of caring services, alongside exciting plans for The Eric Liddell 100, which aims to secure, develop and celebrate Eric Liddell’s legacy.

At The Eric Liddell Community our vision is a community where no one feels lonely. We are driving progress towards this by: providing a Day Service for people living with dementia alongside a programme of community-based activities for people living with dementia; a programme of well-being activities, courses and classes for unpaid carers, and running our vibrant Community Hub, in the heart of Edinburgh.

The primary focus for activities linked to the Community Musician role is the mental health and wellbeing of predominately older people, in particular people living with dementia and their carers.

These vulnerable people have many key needs, but this project will concentrate on the following:

• Social Connections and reducing feelings of isolation

• Emotional Support

• Improved Health & Wellbeing through the use of music

If you have demonstrable experience in developing relationships with vulnerable clients, families and individuals and you have the ability to perform music and use music as a tool to engage with vulnerable people, including people living with dementia, we want to hear from you.
