Vintage Vibes is an amazing city-wide charitable partnership between two longstanding Edinburgh charities, Space and LifeCare. We’re on the lookout for a new Service Co-ordinator to help us tackle loneliness in the city’s older people through creating fantastic friendships.

• Work city-wide meeting fantastic VIPs and volunteers in order to create and support 1:1 friendships.

• Make a difference to Edinburgh’s isolated older people by celebrating individuality, friendship and positivity

• Respond to evolving VIP and volunteer needs through short-term additional support, signposting and additional engagement opportunities.

• Contribute to continual exciting and innovative service developments as part of a fun and fresh thinking team.
