Braveheart is looking for people who are interested in working with over 55’s to promote a healthy lifestyle into older age.
They would train you to facilitate a group of people (in a pair with another mentor), having discussions about health, diet, physical activity, and the difficulties people encounter.
Mentors will always work in pairs, with a group of 10-15 people. Group discussion and small group discussions play a major role in mentoring. As a mentor you would be leading an activity and helping people to reflect on their experiences using discussion.
Groups take place all over the Falkirk area. Mentors use their own means of travel to get to groups and are reimbursed for this. Mentors must be over 18 years old.
The training programme is one evening per week for 9 weeks, and two Saturdays.
