Role

The Pavillion Development Trust (established 1999)is a youth and community organisation that provides a safe and fun environment for young people to take part in many activities including sports, games, coding, art, and music. We work with children to reduce social isolation, helping them to build friendships and to build their confidence and life skills. We provide help and support to young people through issue-based workshops to enable them to tackle issues they may face including anti bullying, healthy relationships, and alcohol/drug issues. The number of young people who attend The Pavilion has risen sharply in the last couple of years and continues to do so.

Job Role

The Peer Wellbeing project coordinator will develop and deliver a programme of workshops to work on the issues young people are experiencing. They will work with them to develop coping mechanisms and strategies to enable them to work through these and cope better in their daily lives. The programme would consist of group work sessions and 1-2-1 support for the young people attending while linking them into any support services they require. The Project Coordinator will work closely with young people who are keen to develop and progress by becoming peer mentors.

Peer mentors will use their own learning to support new members coming through the project in a peer to peer role while being supported by the project coordinator. The Project Coordinator will work closely with the staff team and attendees to ensure a universal message is delivered during all drop in sessions and support is available for all young people.
