Volunteer Peer Group Facilitators

Vision Ireland is seeking volunteer peer group facilitators forĀ a range of existing groups that provide the space for peer support, specific interest discussion and the pursuit of discussions on varying topics. Each group requires a dedicated facilitator and we are looking to appoint a number of new volunteers to assist in providing a wider range of different groups to support our service users and enable more peer engagement.

The facilitator will be required as the stable and fixed central point of contact for service users who wish to attend. They are required to host, supervise and facilitate the smooth and fair running of the group, ensuring all participants are heard, have a chance to participate and to provide guidance to the group on organising the content of each meeting.

Time commitment to this group would be approximately 8 hours per month (maximum) – 4 hours online, 4 hours admin and preparation. A place on a certified Level 6 Group Facilitation Training course is available (5 weeks for one day per week).
