Do you enjoy arts & craft? Then this could be the ideal role for you! The workshop program has the purpose of reducing the premature decline in individual well being and incapacity caused by social isolation and loneliness. We are looking for a dynamic and energetic person to organise different workshops for our members.
This is a new initiative for Fibro & Us. You will be instrumental in the setup of our workshop program
You will plan and deliver 2 hour learning workshops for our members. You may have skills in something that other people want to learn, and get a kick out of sharing them. Ideally you have an idea of what makes for a good learning experience, and with a bit of support would be capable of facilitating the session in a way that will enable the members to connect with each other.
Our members love events that provide informal experiences with a strong emphasis on socialising. Members will learn something new - write poetry, cook easy meals, card making, jewelry making, vision boards or decorate cakes for example - whilst the structure of each lesson allows them to build lasting friendships with fellow members
You will be required to find people who will enjoy sharing their skills teaching our members something new, schedule the dates and be available to facilitate each workshop.

•Passion for social inclusion
•Enjoys meeting and getting to know people from different backgrounds
