Lunch Club Assistant

Mondays from 11:30am-2:30pm

The Heart of Newhaven (4-6 Main Street, Newhaven, Edinburgh EH6 4HY)


 The Lunch Club aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness. With The Heart of Newhaven as the hub, it is designed to provide a free nutritious 2 course meal, allowing individuals to have something to eat as well as someone to eat with, therefore making eating a positive social experience. The Club will support the building of community, allowing new friendships to be created and an increase in feelings of self-esteem and confidence amongst those who attend. It is an intergenerational lunch club for persons of all ages.

What are the aims and expectations of the role?

The volunteer will assist in helping to set the venue up, serve the attendees, make teas/coffees, socialise/eat lunch together and help to tidy up/clean dishes.

The Lunch Club will run every week on a Monday at The Heart of Newhaven. Volunteers should be able to spend between 11.30am and 2:30pm helping at the Lunch Club on a regular basis. The Lunch Club will run for approximately 3 hours each time it runs.

About Cyrenians

Cyrenians is over 50 years old. We began with the creation of an innovative community to meet the needs of a group of homeless people who had fallen through the cracks of whatever support was available at the time. Our roots lie in responding to the injustice of homelessness.

We have spent the last five decades journeying with people grappling with the causes and consequences of homelessness through building and nurturing of trusted relationships and engaging with social exclusion and inequality which has so often been at the root of their tough reality. We are values-led and relationship based; our core values are Compassion, Respect, Integrity and Innovation.

Cyrenians’ head office is based in Edinburgh, with smaller offices in other areas, including Falkirk and West Lothian. Cyrenians is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), registered charity SC011052.
