Caitlin Rodgers – Befriending Coordinator
Hello, my name is Caitlin. I joined the Welcoming in August 2016. I coordinate our befriending programme, ‘Welcoming Friendship’ which connects newcomers with local volunteers for one to one and group befriending. I also coordinate volunteers for weekly playgroup activities and manage the Welcoming’s conversation cafe. What I love most about my job is getting to meet people from all over the world and connecting people enabling new friendships to blossom!
Outside of work, I love running, I especially love the camaraderie and team spirit at races! One of my favourite places to run is around Arthurs Seat. I’ve been lucky enough to grow up with this beautiful green space on my doorstep (though I’ve never actually run up it!) I speak Spanish (un poquito) and I’m trying my best to learn some basic Arabic (schway schway).
