Facilitator stories

17 February 2017

People volunteer their time to Changes for all kinds of reasons. It could be that you have used the service, and want to give something back and to help others. For some it is a path to building self-confidence and self-esteem; as well as a way to get to meet other people. For others it helps them to feel like they are contributing to their local community – making a difference for the better, or simply to expand their own experiences. Volunteering improves your skills and employability as well.

Being a facilitator is an extremely rewarding role in which you would help facilitate the peer support meetings. We provide full training and supervision. This involves being committed to the role by giving up approximately 3 hours of your time, at the same time on the same day each week. All our meetings are run by volunteers and we run induction training twice a year for new intakes of facilitators.
