About this opportunity:
Volunteering is a fantastic way to make a difference to the life of someone else • It can also be a fantastic opportunity to enhance your own life and build new skills to help your personal and career development • Our peer mentors offer support to adults aged 25-40yrs with disabilities • Peer Mentors support the adult in improving socialization, broadening horizons and to try new experiences • The Peer Mentor will also improve the adults' confidence, self-esteem, health and well-being skills by meeting up with them on a regular basis, to build a trusting one to one relationship • Events will be pre-arranged and facilitated and will involve small groups • For example, two peer mentors and two adults going to the cinema or for a meal • This allows the person space and a suitable environment to explore and build up friendships •
Induction and ongoing training for volunteers and support.
