P&J is now based at Words & Actions for Peace, a community peace shop on Ratcliffe Terrace which is also the home of fellow peace organisation Secure Scotland, and which both organisations co-manage together.
At this time we really need friends to help establish our new activities and to keep the doors open. Training will be given, and a chance to follow up on special interests, offer skills or learn more about our issues.
We aim to refresh and create a community where we can help each other to make a positive contribution in Scotland and the world.
In addition to spending time in our new home at Ratcliffe Terrace, there are opportunities for supporting the work through writing, blogging, taking pictures, maybe a bit of research, or conducting a survey on an area of interest. By supporting our social media, making a podcast or helping to plan events volunteers can make a huge contribution to our work together, so we will do our best to ensure that people taking on these tasks can be supported and offered appropriate training wherever possible.
We particularly welcome volunteers from marginalised communities and the learning opportunities that they may offer.
Out of pocket expense agreed in advance can ensure that these opportunities are open to all equally – please let us know of any other obstacles where we may be able to help.
When you’re done – email your completed form to the centre management email
In addition to becoming a member and/or volunteering, you may wish to consider applying to become an Associate.
Associate positions are offered by both Peace and Justice and Secure Scotland, and other paid posts will be advertised ere as and when they arise
We have a small group of 4 trustees at the moment, and would really welcome more trustees to share the work that needs done, as well as bringing in fresh ideas and enthusiasm! To apply please fill in an application form. See here for more information
