Our next round of training for new meeting facilitator volunteers (both online and face-to-face meetings) is coming up.

Could you facilitate?

Are you a people person? Do you have an ear to lend? If you are able to commit to 2.5 hours per week, this might be the perfect volunteer opportunity for you. Changes Bristol is recruiting volunteers to support the running of our groups as we start opening more up.

Facilitating is an extremely rewarding role in which you help to run our peer support meetings. We will provide full training and supervision. After a full training you will be expected to commit approximately 2.5 hours of your time, the same time every week. We need volunteers to be dependable and committed when taking on the role.

As we operate from a model of peer support, we value lived experiences of mental health challenges, so while this is not a requirement for the role, it can be to your advantage when running the groups.

We are looking for volunteers to support a range of groups. Our availability form below lists these.

The training consists of 3 three hour evening online training sessions and the training will run on the following dates:

Evening 1: Thursday 2nd June 6-9pm
Evening 2: Thursday 9th June 6-9pm
Evening 3- Final session: Thursday 16th June 6-9pm

We highly recommend that throughout the training process (and, if possible, before you start training), you attend a group/ groups so you can get used to being part of them and understand how facilitation works.

If you have availability at the above times and can reliably commit to facilitating a group, please fill out our application form and availability form  (below) and return it to service@changesbristol.org.uk no later than 25th April
