Rate of pay: £200-£350 per month, dependant on experience.

Our Peer Networking Support Space has been running since July 2023 and we are now looking for facilitators to deliver it for us online, every second Tuesday in the month.  

The group is specifically for Black and People of Colour working or volunteering in user-led peer groups or campaigning capacities at the intersection of racial justice and mental health, distress and/or trauma based in the UK. We are looking for facilitators who share this lived experience. If you’re interested but unsure if you meet the criteria, please get in touch.

Running roughly along intentional peer support principles, we hold space to build community, to enable compassionate connections, networking opportunities and to spread awareness of abolitionist approaches to mental health, distress and/or trauma. Sharing with others is a way to build resource and collective power to make change. It is together as a network that we hold far greater information and wisdom.

Though topics of conversation are led by the group, we expect some of the below areas to come up:

We do not expect facilitators to be experts on these topics, but some awareness of abolitionist approaches to mental health is important (including but not limited to: understanding that mainstream options can be carceral; alternatives to standard psychiatric and psychological care e.g. crisis houses, Hearing Voices Groups and Intentional Peer Support; the need for anti-racist therapy, mutual aid and non-individualist approaches to care).

Other expectations for facilitators:

If you would like to be considered for a position, please send an email outlining how you meet the brief (please limit this to 2 sides of A4 at most) to synergi.info@nsun.org.uk

If you have any questions, please do get in touch. Applications will be open until we receive enough interest, so please be aware it may be some time before you hear back from us.
