VSA to a Tea

Type of initiative funded: Group Activity


Funding awarded: £11000


Project description:

We propose to host the admin role within our team at VSA. VSA will provide a work base/ hybrid working pattern and IT resources. Admin support to collate information from providers, format weekly newsletter, distribute weekly newsletter, publish on website and circulate hard copies as necessary- 7 hours per week - £5,000. We will also launch “VSA to a Tea”, which will give people across Aberdeen the opportunity to come to a VSA service to have a cup of tea, a chat, and also somewhere for unpaid carers to come and meet other carers with the person they support. We propose to host this at our Broomhill Activity Centre initially one Saturday or Sunday a month. This service will be supported by existing VSA staff and recruited volunteers.
