Peer Link Workers
Our Peer Link Worker service is currently suspended due to Coronavirus. We are still, however, recruiting and hope to complete relevant training during movement restrictions using electronic e-learning and Zoom training sessions in preparation for the time we can all meet again face-to-face.
The PLW program is based on non-clinical interventions aimed at helping to prevent a crisis or relapse with an individual’s mental health as well as offering ongoing support for clients without encouraging learned helplessness.
They offer one-to-one support and work with a multitude of organisations to deliver the best possible ongoing support when needed. The PLW’s are a team of volunteers who help support clients with a range of mental health issues and help refer and signpost them to a wide range of organisations and services within the local area. They offer a buddying service to appointments and help to work with the client at a pace that suits them. All PLW’s commit their time as volunteers and most have lived experience of metal health issues. The amount of time they volunteer varies depending on their own personal circumstances.
Shine is preparing to recruit the next group of volunteers to be trained to become PLW’s in Louth and Lincoln plus possible video volunteering around the county. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone that wants to give back by volunteering. Shine offers a very supportive, understanding and encouraging environment for volunteers to grow, build their skills, develop their self-esteem, meet new people and be part of a team that love what they do.
Are you ready? do you want to become a PLW’s?
