Mentoring project seeks volunteers

First published in Devon

EXETER Community Initiative’s Transitions are looking for volunteers throughout the county to support their clients and help smooth their transition to wellbeing and independent living.

Clients may be going through a period of change - such as moving home, looking for work or claiming new benefits. They also help people resolve temporary problems to help people maintain their independence and quality of life.

Transitions is a mentoring project working with vulnerable adults who have been through difficult times – homelessness, substance misuse, mental health or the criminal justice system – and support them as they return to living independently.

Volunteers work one-to-one with clients, and help with searching for accommodation, manage resources and participate in their community.

They are looking for people who are patient, understanding and non-judgemental.

No specific qualifications are needed as full training is given - however, it would be an advantage to have experience of going through tough times and/or previous experience of working in or studying homelessness, mental health, learning disability, addictions, social work or advice work.

If you would like to find out more about this unique opportunity, contact Laura Calliway on 01392 205800, or email . More information can be found online at - .
