Get Set to Go - Peer Volunteers
We are currently recruiting activity and peer volunteers for our Get Set to Go project!
We believe that mental health issues shouldn't be a barrier to physical activity for anyone. Get Set to Go is a physical activity programme that supports people with mental health issues to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Delivered in partnership with our local English Football League (EFL) team AfC Wimbledon, we offer taster sessions in different sports and structured physical activities of up to 12 weeks.
We are looking to connect with local people keen to use their own skill or experience of physical activity to support our project, and who have experience of mental health issues. Join us as a peer volunteer and use your own experiences to motivate, support and benefit others in your local community.
