Vintage Vibes is an award-winning, city-wide project delivered in partnership with LifeCare Edinburgh, tackling isolation and loneliness among over-60s (who we call VIPs). Vintage Vibes creates long lasting one-to-one friendships offering support, companionship and the opportunity for VIPs to be more socially connected and active in their local community.
“Thank you so much for introducing us, my call with my VIP is the highlight of my week”
Services for Vintage Vibes:
• 1-1 Friendships: We have a fantastic group of volunteers who we match up 1-1 with our VIPs based on their similar interests. Our matches normally meet weekly in person or over the phone and engage in a range of activities, such as VIP Jane and her volunteer Robert going along to an arts club together, Joyce and her volunteer Grace taking part in a woodland clear up project together, or VIP Bill and his volunteer Keith having a cuppa and a blether.
• Vocal Vibes : our fantastic singing group, where you can meet new friends and rediscover music in a relaxed setting. Currently running online over Zoom every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month.
• Vintage Vibes Film Group : The Vintage Vibes Film Group is currently on hold due to COVID-19. But rest assured we will be back up and running again as soon as possible. It won’t be long until you can meet new friends via a love of film again!
