Volunteers Sought for Buddies Peer Support Service

Buddies is a peer support service operating from the belief that people experiencing mental distress benefit from contact with other people with similar experience.

Buddies are people who know recovery is possible and are willing to share their experience. Volunteers spend time with people at Te Whare O Matairangi as well as participating in community events. Buddies are volunteers and are independent of the District Health Board.

The team is now seeking new volunteers to join Buddies. Please contact Buddies at Kites Trust for more information on how you can use your personal lived experience of recovery from mental distress to help.
