Youth Matters at Mind in Somerset – Peer Support Volunteer

Youth Matters volunteers help to facilitate our weekly peer support groups for young people.

About the opportunity

This voluntary role will help you to develop your skills and experience whilst supporting young people in a group environment. You will be provided with appropriate training for the role. Applications are encouraged from people who have lived experience of mental health difficulties or from those who have an understanding of what mental health difficulties may mean for others.

What are we looking for?

An ability to listen and demonstrate empathy is essential for this voluntary role. Some experience of working with children and young people in a voluntary or paid capacity is desired.

Where and when?

We ask that volunteers commit to a minimum of 6-months with Mind in Somerset to ensure consistency for the young people who we support. We also ask that you can offer at least 2.5 hours of support every week at a regular time. Currently, we have 10 peer support groups running across the county of Somerset. Although we are currently recruiting for our Langport group, please get in touch if you are interested in supporting one of our other groups as we always welcome volunteers (Bridgwater, Taunton, Chard, Shepton Mallet, Yeovil, Frome, Minehead, Bridport & Online via Zoom).
