Volunteer - Extra Care Housing Visitors/Activity Leaders

This is a great opportunity to make a meaningful difference to individuals living in extra-care housing in Midlothian.

This role takes place for at least 2 hours per week. A minimum commitment of 6 months is requested after training and induction is complete.
