Welcome to New Staff

Nov 04 2016

Welcome to Ryan and Eilidh, PEP’s newest members of staff. They have come on board to run the LOOPS North West Community Navigation Project. LOOPS (Local Opportunities for Older People) is a citywide service designed to let older people know what’s going on in their local area and to help them access the support and services they need.

Across Edinburgh the Community Navigators and teams of friendly local volunteers can support older people to find out what is on in their local area; and how best to access the support that is needed, in the way that is best for the individual.

The North West Community Navigators will be offering:
o    Information stations – Over the coming months, Eilidh and Ryan will be setting up information stations for older people to find up to date information about activities, events and services in the area.
o    A friendly face – Our friendly staff and volunteers will be there to help talk individuals through what is on offer and what might be best for them
o    Free Local LOOPS Magazines – The twice yearly magazine will be produced highlighting services and including articles and features on local events and points of interest.
o    Home-visits – Where available and appropriate we will be offering home-visits to make it easier for people to discover the options available and decide for themselves!

Staff Farewells

Oct 18 2016

Last week we said a fond farewell to staff member Kristy Duff. Kristy came to PEP as a student back in 2014 and never quite left!

For the last two years she worked as a mental health development worker with PEP’s Neighbourhood Group and we know the group members will sorely miss her… as of course will the rest of the staff!

We wish her all the best for the future in her new role at ‘Equal Scotland’ as a Development Officer helping to provide a range of services designed to meet gaps in the provision of Equal Rights in Scotland.

Good luck Kristy!
