Salary: N/A
Contract Type: Voluntary

Please note that we will be operating open recruitment for this opportunity and therefore may close submissions at any time. For this reason, applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible as places will be offered on a first-come-first serve basis subject to role criteria being met.

We're looking for people to join a team of Peer Representative Volunteers for up to 9 months working as part of Off The Record (OTR), a mental health social movement by and for young people aged 11-25 living in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

The Peer Representative placement is an opportunity for a ‘hands on’ experience of working with young people in a variety of ways through OTR’s existing projects as well as developing initiatives/ideas of your own. This could include working face-to-face with young people (e.g. through our in person drop-in Hubs), staffing the enquiry line/answering emails, liaising with parents and professionals, co-facilitating groups and developing new projects and website resources.

Peer Representatives can use their voice, influence the development, direction and delivery of services, build on their strengths and have an opportunity to lead in a chosen area of work to  help create positive change for young people on both individual and structural levels.
