We run our own volunteer training programme designed to equip each person with the skills required to mentor one of our young people.
Service users have told us that they like speaking to "non-professionals" because they feel like they're speaking to someone who cares and wants to help.
It has been proven that seeking out and receiving appropriate support increases the success and sustainability of a person's recovery.
We are currently running our first Befriending Programme - a form of virtually supporting young people through a shared interest/ skill/ hobby. Based on core social values, this is an exciting new project that we're looking forward to see develop.
We've successfully ran 2 training programmes and are currently working on the training template to further improve its quality. Due to the current Covid_19 regulations we're unable to run our programme but we look forward to welcoming new volunteers when we can!
