This opportunity would be of particular interest to anyone studying/ interested in children and young people’s mental health. Volunteers support a group three times per year (minimum).

Groups run weekly for 1hr 30mins for a period of 6 to 8 weeks. Volunteers support the group leader for 30minutes prior to the start of the group and 30 minutes after (total of 2.5 hours per week). Most groups run during the week between 4pm and 8pm. Full training in safeguarding and child protection, group process and confidentiality is provided.
