Summary

We are looking for people with a positive outlook to mentor our members who are in recovery from substance misuse.

Detailed description

A mentor is a person who guides a less experienced person by building trust, supporting

positive behaviours and helping a person develop their own skills, knowledge and confidence.

 

Our Mentors provide 1:1 mentoring support to help individuals to continue their recovery and supporting them to access activities and opportunities within The Matthew Project and in the wider community.

 

Tasks will be agreed with the team and on an individual basis and may include:

  • to support Next Step members to recognise and utilise their skills and make a positive contribution to their ongoing recovery and the wider community
  • to discuss with the team and mentee any goals, or help to consider possible goals, of the mentee
  • where applicable, to arrange mentoring appointments with the mentee
  • keep brief notes about each communication and feed back to the team

 

Personal qualities are also very important:-

  • good listening skills
  • positive attitude
  • reliability
  • good communication skills
  • commitment to recovery principles

About The Matthew Project

Our work benefits a wide range of people from a wide range of different backgrounds. We help these beneficiaries to achieve better physical and mental health, better relationships with others, and overall better quality of life, along with access to more opportunities.

As well as the individuals themselves, our work also creates social change and improvements to the local community in a range of different ways. These include improved family relationships and friendships, reductions in drug/alcohol misuse, reduced strain on local health and wellbeing services, reductions in rates of offending, and improved skills and employment outcomes for our service users, all of which help to regenerate the local community.
