Leith Community Centre Association SCIO, which manages Leith Community Centre, 12a Newkirkgate is hosting the second Leith Volunteer Fair. Following on from the success of Leith Volunteer Fair #1 in June this year, the event will now be held twice each year.
Leith Links Community participated in the first Leith Volunteer Fair, with colleagues from Leith Central Community Council and Leith Harbour & Newhaven Community Council.
There is a volunteering opportunity for everyone. Come along to the second Leith Volunteer Fair to explore volunteering opportunities in Leith & beyond.
There will be number of organisations seeking one off, occasional & regular volunteers and they are looking forward to meeting you.
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people & make new friends, build your confidence, try something new, get hands on practical experience, develop your CV and give something back to your community.
There are many ways to volunteer in our community, one of them is by becoming a Community Councillor on Leith Links Community Council.
Later this year we will be having our 2019 election, which will provide a chance for you to put yourself forward as a Community Councillor for the next three years.

You’ll recall that earlier this year we brought you news of the Edinburgh ParkLife project, which is seeking to use data & information to improve Leith Links (and three other parks elsewhere in the City).
They are moving forward with their project and require the assistance of some volunteers to help them.
The ParkLife user research team invites you to be a ‘park blitz’ volunteer. With your help, we will conduct short face-to-face surveys with park users about their experiences in four parks across Edinburgh. ‘Blitzes’ will last for two hours in one park, and volunteers can opt to participate in more than one blitz. We havefurther opportunities to volunteer at two park community events, for two or four hours per event. You will receive a short trainingsession on the survey questionnaire on 7 May at 2pm (if unavailable then, please let us know).
User research is part of the larger ParkLife project, which experiments with new techniques for gathering and analysing park data. For more information go here.
We will provide a packed lunch and refreshments.
Please indicate your availability in the doodle poll below:
The ParkLife user research team is excited to meet all of you!
