If you become a peer-to-peer mentor, you can follow the recent success of Janis Werrett. Janis, Director of Cynon Valley Organic Adventures, increased her cause’s impact in Rhondda Cynon Taf by sharing knowledge with other local community and voluntary groups. Her work shows how becoming a peer-to-peer mentor is a great way of achieving your group’s goals.
We asked her about her experience, and she said:
Being able to connect with other groups with similar values and aims as our own is invaluable. It has helped to build some strong, mutually supportive links that will continue long into the future.
The most important part of it for me…is playing a part in creating and supporting other community initiatives like ours, helping to raise awareness of green prescribing and to share our own resources and structure to ensure that other areas get to benefit from similar activities and support.
If you become a peer-to-peer mentor, we at Interlink RCT will reimburse your group for your time mentoring. That could mean another income stream at your organisation. You can mentor in these areas:
- opening up or recovery from the pandemic
- setting up groups
- digital skills
- green social prescribing
- action on climate change
