We are looking for people who have the time to give, are friendly, reliable and empathic to the needs of the Live Well Leeds service. No formal qualifications are required and we will work around your weekly commitments.
Training and support will be provided by our coordinators.
Please note Live Well Leeds is not a crisis service and will signpost individuals if they are in crisis to appropriate crisis services. If a person using the service has a crisis then they will also be referred to a crisis service for support.
