Buddies Peer Support Volunteer

(Wellington Hospital, Hutt Valley Hospital

or Kenepuru Community Hospital)

Do you want to make a positive difference, gain skills, build confidence, strengthen your recovery from mental health distress and find pathways to employment? We are looking for Buddies peer support volunteers living in Hutt Valley, Wellington or Porirua to extend kindness and a listening ear to people experiencing mental health distress at the acute recovery unit at Te Whare Ahuru/Hutt Valley Hospital, Te Whare o Matairangi/Wellington Hospital or Kenepuru Community Hospital/Tangaroa Ward.

Being a Buddies Peer Support volunteer is about walking alongside and sharing your own lived experience of mental health to support others at the in-patient units.
