Could you create fun, friendship and mutual support for older people through virtual and face-to-face activities?
Are you creative, energetic, passionate, but importantly, highly organised? You'll need to be as comfortable making sure a minibus transport schedule is up to date, as you are delivering quirky craft activities, or hosting NHS professionals delivering advice on cancer screening, as you would be helping to run a visit to a local farm or a trip to the seaside.
You need to have lots of ideas for social activities and events, but also able to make those ideas happen. You need to understand the challenges older people face, but recognise that older people need fun, friendship, and empowerment, as much as they need to have any physical needs met - and have as much to give to their community as anyone younger.
You also need to be IT savvy and confident developing and using virtual communication media for online activities, which are currently the only way some older people will be able to engage with each other.

Closing date, 12 noon, Friday 2nd October.
