An exciting opportunity has arisen within Aberdeen Foyer’s Impact project.  The post of Skills Coach is based at Restored, Fraserburgh.

The Impact project provides a comprehensive programme of support for adults living with long term mental health conditions - to move them from a state of dependence and isolation to one of effective self-management of their condition.

The role requires the planning and delivery of day to day project activities alongside volunteers and peer mentors in a positive and solution focussed way.  Activities will be based at our Restored site and will centre on upcycling furniture and learning new arts and crafts.

Our perfect Restored person is:

  • Friendly and approachable - with an ability to work with individuals who have good days and bad days
  • Organised and calm
  • Open minded and excited about the opportunities we have to further develop our allocated space i.e. new arts, crafts & upcycling ideas
  • Happy and confident to work at Restored as their main base
