The Peer Partnership is always looking for new peer support projects to get involved with, however we will not always be aware of everyone who wants one.
We are running a Co-Creation Program that invites people living with a physical or mental health condition, or protected characteristics, to join us in becoming Peer Advocate volunteers. These Peer Advocates will be partnering with us to design, develop, and seek funding for a peer support project relevant to them.
As a Peer Advocate you will be joining us for one day a week for up to six months. During this time you will learn how to research your condition, find out about the needs of people living with it, run focus groups, design a peer support project and pitch for funding. You will be supported by The Peer Partnerships coordinator, who has successfully designed, developed and implemented existing peer support projects and will work with you to try and get your peer support project up and running. Please note that we cannot guarantee that your program will be started, but we will work hard with you to give it every opportunity to do so.
To apply for this role, you need to be:
Living with or affected by the condition you would like to design the project for
Be able to work flexibly both from home and The Peer Partnership’s Bristol office
Able to commit to one day a week (flexible hours) for up to 6 months.
The program is currently closed to new applications.
