Volunteer training

We offer 3 accredited courses:

Level 1 OCN Peer Mentoring

Our four week course will enable you to become a peer mentor. A peer mentor is someone with lived experience of mental and social health difficulties.

Level 2 OCN Supporting People in Recovery

Our 12 week course will enable you to become a recovery practitioner. Leading psycho educational groups and helping clients on a one to one basis are all performed by recovery practitioners.

Level 3 OCN Ambassador

Our Ambassador course is for those people that have completed the above courses who wish to continue leading activities but also want to go that bit further to develop both personal and professional skills in the realms of community development. The Ambassador role entails working with the public, other community members, agencies and organisations, understanding issues of governance and management (Community and Service Rules), diplomacy, advocacy and ambassadorial activities such as promoting our services in the local community and further afield to increase understanding and awareness of mental health and social health difficulties and to resolve inequalities to accessing services.
