About this event

​ St Mungo’s and KS2 will be hosting a public event to enable providers of mental health services in BaNES to discuss feedback with people affected by mental health issues and how service delivery is and can be developed to address local needs.

The St Mungo's 'Building Bridges to Wellbeing' team works innovatively and creatively with people who have a lived experience of mental health challenges, volunteers and other agencies to empower, inspire and promote independence and wellbeing. We support mental health and wellbeing pathways which enable the positive progression of clients and volunteers. We do this by utilising a peer volunteering service providing and supporting:

Peer Volunteer Development - Facilitating and supporting services and groups to increase and improve Peer Volunteering opportunities.

Volunteer Training - Co-ordinating free training for volunteers, giving them the knowledge and confidence to successfully volunteer. We utilise the knowledge and skills of staff and peers, from a range of organisations and groups, to provide training.

Volunteer Progression - Supporting organisations and groups to develop volunteer opportunities, enabling peer volunteers to progress. This progression could lead to education or employment.
