Experts by Experience speakers – current vacancies
In the Experts by Experience project there are opportunities for being part of a team developing and delivering workshops together.
We talk with people attending our workshops about our experiences, beliefs and feelings that have sometimes been labelled as mental illness and/or our experience of supporting a friend or family member. Sometimes this work can be paid work.
Due to ‘service user- involvement work’ being a special category of work, there are opportunities for speakers to take part in one of the following ways: bank work employee, self-employed or voluntary. If you are interested in joining the Experts by Experience workshop team as a speaker:
