One of the primary objectives of Whitleigh Big Local is to empower local residents and allow them to learn the new skills that will change their lives for the better. We have a number of projects underway at the moment but are finding that there is one barrier that prevents applications even before they start – people are not confident filling in forms.
We are looking for local residents who feel they could offer encouragement and support for those considering an application. There are no specific criteria to meet although good communication and literacy skills would be an advantage. The mentor positions would be on a voluntary basis but should prove to be a positive experience.
If you think you you might be interested then please contact Pippa (firstname.lastname@example.org) and arrange an informal chat – or pass this on tofriends who you think would be good at the role.
