A Peer Support Facilitator is vital to the growth and sustainability of support groups in the community. The local Teesside-By-Side network, consists of 20 groups that operate independently in the community, to provide non-clinical support to locals through the sharing of mutual experiences and interests.
The groups vary in what they focus on; some are activity based such as walking, running and art, others focus on sharing experiences in relation to mental health or physical conditions.
As a facilitator, you will attend a range of support groups in the community, to:
- Support new group leads to set up their group
- Facilitate groups when a lead is unavailable
- Provide ongoing assistance through occasional drop in sessions
As a facilitator, you will ensure the groups run smoothly, that rules and guidelines are implemented and followed as set out by each group and ensure participants feel safe in the meetings.
