As Hub Activities Peer Worker, you will contribute to the successful delivery of the ‘include hub’ by providing innovative, friendly, informal support and advice both at the drop-in centre and in the local community.
You will contribute to the positive energy and non-judgemental environment of the include hub, ensuring members’ ideas are heard and that they feel supported to shape how things are done.
You will work closely with the staff and volunteer team to offer hub members a sense of belonging and an environment where individuals are supported to identify and put into action realistic solutions to their individual challenges.
Include (trading name of Gibran UK) is a not for profit organisation that has been providing free independent community support to offenders across Wales since 2006, supporting nearly 3k people in this time.
Our flagship project, the ‘include hub’, is shaped by ex-offenders to benefit this group and the wider community. The project is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
At the hub, there is access to 1:1 support, and open drop-in where people receive practical and emotional support, from basic needs (positive company, nutritious lunch, a hot shower, clothing), to involvement in groups or courses with a focus on participation in positive activities.
The hub’s design relies on the input of volunteers and its member, and offers Swansea a real opportunity to create a new model of working, one that is genuinely co-produced by people who benefit from the service, and offers the flexibility to give members what they want.
The Hub Activities Peer Worker will be essential in the development of the hub, ensuring that it’s a vibrant and welcoming space for all. In addition to providing hospitality and a welcome to members accessing the hub, you will be involved in helping people overcome some of the challenges faced by being involved in offending, and will be involved in organising, taking part in, and delivering positive activities.
Some examples of the activities requested by hub members include: Trips out, Crafts, Music; Training; IT; Cooking; Fitness & Wellbeing.
