Loneliness is too much for many. Also for adults with mental vulnerability. Fortunately, there is something we can do about it – together!

We are looking for two volunteers who will facilitate a group of approximately six adults who all experience loneliness. The group works with self-help and sparring about loneliness. As facilitators, you must create a safe space for the participants, so that they have the courage to share their challenges and experiences with each other. You must also ensure that the conversation flows smoothly, ensure that everyone gets speaking time and help set the agenda for each meeting.

You don't need to know anything about loneliness beforehand. You get an intro course and there is always the opportunity for sparring with our coordinator and an employee from De Frivilliges Hus.

Before starting, you will be given various tools for how you can initiate the difficult conversation, which topics and conversation exercises you can use, how you listen best, etc.

We offer you:

  • Exciting and educational courses on facilitation and loneliness.
  • Experience and practice in facilitating groups and group discussions.
  • Knowledge of and experience with loneliness issues.
  • Ongoing support and sparring.

Practical:

The group meetings will take place every Wednesday from 15.30-17.00 from 9 October - 11 December.

You will participate in three course modules in preparation for your role as a volunteer facilitator. Other volunteer self-help group facilitators from other cities take part in the course.

The first modules are at the following times (it is also possible to participate in the modules later in the year):

  • Tuesday 27/8 at 17.00-18.00 (in De Frivillige Hus)
  • Tuesday 10/9 at 17.00-21.00 (in Silkeborg)
  • Wednesday 18/9 at 16.00-18.00 (in De Frivillige Hus)

Does that sound like something for you?

We would love to hear from you :-)
