Compass Recovery College are commencing their free voluntary sector mental health and wellbeing training in January, these workshops are open access to staff, volunteers and befrienders alike. Throughout the pandemic volunteers and community groups have been vital in supporting those who need it, Compass recognises the importance of this work and wants to give back to those who do so much for others. The goal of this free training is to boost voluntary sector mental health and wellbeing knowledge and help those supporting others to take control of their own mental well-being.
We would like to continue developing this training based on the needs and interests of the voluntary and community sector. If you have any experiences or interests we can help with please contact Ashley at email@example.com to discuss future opportunities.
In this wellbeing session we will use yoga tools and practices, such as breathing, movement and self-massage to care for ourselves. We will listen to our needs as supporters with kindness and begin to care for those needs as a priority both for ourselves and the people we support.
