Potential Volunteers are invited to attend an Intentional Peer Support training programme.
The programme is educational, fun and self exploratory with an emphasis on intentional peer support and recovery. It also helps people examine their past and current experiences, their potential strengths and vulnerabilities as well as their motivation and readiness to become a Warmline volunteer.
There will also be regular ongoing training for volunteer peer supporters, which occurs in conjunction with group supervision.
