Are you a disabled person, someone with
a long-term condition or a carer?
Do you live in Edinburgh, East Lothian, West Lothian or Midlothian?
Are you interested in using your lived experience to help others?
LCiL is recruiting a group of volunteer one-to-one
peer supporters who’ll use their lived experience to encourage, inspire and inform others – supporting them in their own journey, and acting as role models.
You’ll be matched with someone with similar experience. Over a period of weeks or months you’ll meet with them regularly, build a positive, non-judgmental relationship and support them
to explore or learn new things, make decisions
about what’s important to them or deal with changes in their life.
The outcome should be positive for both of you –
leading to more confidence, better skills and knowledge and increased resilience
Training and ongoing support will be given, and travel costs reimbursed.
