Family Caregivers of British Columbia is looking for individuals who can listen with compassion and who have caregiving experience or knowledge of family caregiver issues and concerns. We are looking to add support group facilitators to our volunteer team, as well as support community organizations who have a caregiving support program.
This training will provide you with information about the peer support group model, and the skills and techniques for facilitating a caregiver support group.
This online training will take place over four (4) days, gathering daily to navigate a 2.5 hour module. We expect you to make a commitment to full time participation in the 4 online modules. Failure to attend ALL 4 modules will result in unsuccessful completion of the training. Maximum of 3 staff/volunteers per organization.
Is this training a fit for you? After the registration process, a FCBC staff will get in touch to have a conversation about your caregiving experience. This can really help explain the volunteer Support Group Facilitator role and help you to decide if it’s a fit for you.
Facilitators: Stacey Dawes, FCBC Caregiver Engagement Lead & Lycia Rodrigues, FCBC Caregiver Support Manager
Dates: October 3, 4, 5 and 6, 2022 from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm PST daily.
