Urban Biodiversity – the team behind Newquay Orchard – are looking for a Peer Support Worker to support our volunteers and the wider community based on their own lived experience of mental health.

Recognising that there is no better person to support the path towards recovery than someone who has walked the same path and overcome some of the challenges themselves, you will share the wisdom and learning from your own lived experiences that will inspire the hope and belief that recovery is possible in others.

You will also provide formalised peer support and practical assistance to our volunteers, programme participants and the wider community, in order for them to regain control over their lives and their own unique recovery process.  

Lived experience of mental health is an essential part of this role along with a good education to GCSE standard (including Maths and English). You will also need a clean driving licence with the use of a vehicle and be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
