Construction workers, including those who are self-employed, in and around the Nottingham area will be able to access tailored peer support.
Free support is available for people working in the construction industry to improve the wellbeing of workers through sport, advice from people who have overcome mental and physical health barriers, and priority access to medical support such as physios.
This is a launch event to provide full details on the programme available. **(Date has been changed from the 11th of February)**
Each programme delivery will be over a twelve-week period.
The programme will be co-facilitated by Self Help UK and Notts County Football In The Community.
The Programme outline and the range of workshops and/or physical activity sessions will be explained and discussed. Participants will have an individualised assessment of need and will frame their own Action Plan (including their desired outcomes from the Programme).
The initial self – assessment will be key to each programme delivery: the co-production model is important to both delivery partners and they will endeavour to modify the offer where unmet needs are identified.
The individuals attending will be given time to get to know each other: an important part of the session will be looking at the theory and practice of self help and how this is linked to peer support: the role of Peer Support Mentors (and plans for the recruitment and training of these) will be discussed.
The session will include an introduction to the Big White Wall resource and to the potential for using social media in the practice of effective peer support.
