Job opportunities: sessional project workers for DEEP Peer support groups
We are recruiting freelance sessional project workers who can provide practical support to established and developing independent groups across Nottingham.
Could you help people living with dementia in Nottingham establish their own peer and social support groups as part of the DEEP network?
Do you have a couple of hours each week to offer support or are you able to provide help with specific projects, for example: marketing a group or offering accessible training on using the internet?
We need people who can offer help with travel arrangements, booking venues arranging activities and marketing groups as well as general support to group members who may be interested in learning new skills, campaigning for their voice to be heard or visiting new places.
If you are already helping a DEEP group become established in Nottingham and would like to be part of the support hub, please do apply.
