Job description

This is an exciting opportunity to join Open Age an innovative London charity working with people 50+. Established in 1993 and now celebrating almost 30 years of championing an active life for older people. Each week we run a wide range of activities for older people from our own centres, community venues, online and by phone. From boxing to ballet, painting to photography - Open Age’s array of activities seeks to support the physical and mental wellbeing of our members and, in doing so, aims to address the issue of loneliness and isolation among older people.

The Be Active Project supports older people who are being discharged from Health Services by matching them with volunteers who will support them to maintain their physical activity and reconnect them with their community. The roles we are seeking to fill will recruit, train and manage the volunteers as well as maintain a close working relationship with referral health partners who will also be providing an element of the training for volunteers.  The Be Active Project is delivered in Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster. The post holder will be required to visit people in their homes to perform this role.
