Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust
TEWV provides a range of mental health, learning disability and eating disorders services. We will talk about the nature of the hospital, ward environments, and client groups, and what we would be looking for from volunteers interested in our opportunities; including the types of skills, commitment needed and induction processes, and what they would potentially gain from the experience in terms of the development of their own skills.

Come along and learn about our Volunteer Health Champion role in our Customer Support Services. This role is an opportunity for volunteers to provide support, advice and information to our service users to enable them to manage their own health and wellbeing in the future. The volunteers will gain experience working a wide range of vulnerable client groups.
We are looking for 2 volunteers who are passionate about promoting health and well-being to others. The volunteers will advise our service users about lifestyle changes e.g. healthy eating, awareness of alcohol consumption, smoking cessation, pregnancy needs, exercise... and more!
