The Silver Social - Volunteer Promoter

Make a difference to older people in your local community and become a volunteer for Breckland Council's Silver Social Project. 

The Project is delivering an ambitious programme of daytime events to community venues across Breckland, promoting participation and independent living to older people in rural communities. Until 2020, workshops and performances held by professional artists are taking place in Ashill, Necton, Shipdham, Mattishall, Harling, Dereham, Attleborough, Swaffham, Watton and Thetford.

As a Silver Social Volunteer Promoter, your role is to act as an advocate for the Project and help promote Silver Social events in your area. Using both traditional and online methods, this will be done through the distribution of publicity material; word of mouth recommendation and promoting activities at local clubs and groups, as well as sharing online content through social media and event listing websites. This role is an opportunity to gain experience in event promotion and organisation, with the potential to join a wider network of volunteer promoters running your own events, in partnership with Creative Arts East.

Volunteering for the Silver Social is an unpaid position, but is an opportunity to gain experience on a nationally recognised arts project, with the potential to develop your own community programme. Travel expenses will be covered.

Approximately 3 – 5 hours a month (flexible). Exact days dependent on programming schedule.
