Golden Years aims to support individuals over 60, living in Edinburgh, who are at risk of or suffering from loneliness and isolation perhaps due to anxiety or depression, or they have no close family, or no family at all.

As a group helper you’ll be:

  • Engaging with local older people.
  • Helping them feel welcome, improving their confidence and helping them integrate with the others in the group
  • Working closely with the Group Coordinator in setting up and delivering a range of group activities, in response to what they feel would enrich their lives

There are a variety of groups available that you could support with, including:

  • Nordic Walking groups where you would assist the instructor Wednesday 12-2pm or Thursday 1-3pm
