The Community Buddy programme is peer to peer support and is centred around a structured but supportive conversation in a safe and non-judgemental space. It allows an individual to discuss how they are coping or not coping and working with the Buddy to discuss (and co-produce) ways of moving forward to overcome the challenges.
Trained Buddies will be equipped to provide free, ongoing support for those in their communities who may be struggling and need help to cope and improve their quality of life.
Training to become a Community Buddy comprises of two full days. Thursday & Friday- November 25th & 26th (2 full days – 9.30am to 5pm each day)
