Walk Leader / Peer Support

Scottish Association For Mental Health

Organised a walking group with another volunteer after being asked to offer peer support to people on the "Branching Out" project. After receiving training from Paths 4 All, we offered a bi-weekly walking group providing informal support to clients. "Branching Out" teaches people some basic woodcraft skills and they work towards a John Muir Award, again I provided informal support to people on the program, ensuring people felt included.
