Help facilitate our peer support group

Leading group activities volunteers needed for DrugFAM in RG7

We are looking for passionate and dedicated volunteers to facilitate our peer support group in Swallowfield near Reading, on a Monday evening.

This is a very fulfilling role that supports positive change for families, friends and partners affected by someone else’s drug or alcohol use.

You need to be:

  • empathetic
  • a good listening
  • caring
  • non-judgemental.

 

If you have experience of a family member, friend or partner who has been affected we would like to hear from you.
