Our weekly Welcoming Lunch is possible thanks to the help of our fabulous volunteers.

We have two roles available to help support our weekly Welcoming Lunch on Fridays.

Lunch Collection/Pick Up
This role involves collecting the food from Pret-a-Manger on Lothian Road at 5.55pm sharp, then bringing it back to the Welcoming to store in our fridge. This all takes no more than 1 hour / 1 hour 15 minutes. It is a very straightforward and practical role that makes a big difference for us.

Time commitment: Thursdays, ready for pick up at Lothian Road by 5.55pm sharp, finishing at the Welcoming around 7pm

Lunch Host
This role involves setting up the lunch at the Welcoming and clearing the space once lunch is finished. Key tasks include

* creating a relaxed, informal atmosphere that help participants feel welcomed and enjoy the gathering

* engaging with participants who seem lonely or isolated

* helping to monitor attendance and evaluation of the Welcoming Lunch

Time commitment: Fridays, 12pm – 1.30pm

If you are interested in either, or both, of these roles, please contact info@thewelcoming.org
