In December we have continued to push forward with our Housing Buddies volunteer programme, as well as making further progress with the ‘Online Researcher’ guides we are producing.
We are pleased to have recruited another Housing Buddy, Kath, who is based in Falkirk and ready to get stuck in to supporting clients, as well as helping with some general outreach work too. This month we also held a meeting with our Housing Buddies, Lindsay, Fiona and Shirley to evaluate how the programme has gone so far, and to make plans for expansion in the New Year. Exciting times!
Our intern, Barkat, has completed the first of our ‘Welcome To Your Area!’ guides for Fife and our Volunteer Coordinator, Ben, is meeting two further volunteers in the New Year to get them involved with the project too.
