Volunteer

Group Support – social spaces and support groups

Role Summary

Volunteers in our social spaces and support groups take on slightly different roles.  We will discuss which one is right for you during the interview. This is the first role in which all our core service volunteers start.

In the support group role, you will work with the group facilitator in the general running of the group, listening to members concerns and celebrating their victories, helping them gain perspective, build resilience, and reach a point where they no longer need our support.  It will enable you to build your confidence and increase your skills in active listening, empathic response and using O365 for basic admin.

The social space role is similar but more relaxed, you will still assist with the general running of the group, but this will be more chatty, keeping conversations flowing and making sure everyone is involved and comfortable.  You will build skills in room management, activities planning, and events coordination.
