Volunteer recruitment for the west lothian intergenerational project

The project is currently looking for more volunteers aged 60-85 years who are interested in helping young children in West Lothian primary schools (P1-4) with their reading, writing, numeracy etc. The volunteers will be asked to help in a school for up to 4 hours over 2 school days (e.g., two mornings), for 6 months ( from September 2019-March 2020). The researchers anticipate that this project may bring health and wellbeing benefits for the adult volunteers themselves, as well as help the children and schools involved.

The programme has recently been shown on the TV, with both STV and BBC filmed current volunteers and Headteachers. See a clip yourself. To take part in the project email Anna or call on 07376468498.
