Note: The application round mentioned in this post has now passed, but we are still accepting applications on a rolling basis.
Everyone wants the best for their communities and for future generations – it’s just that it can be so hard to make the right choices. So many community groups and organisations want to make the best decisions for themselves and for the planet, but have no idea where to start – it can be overwhelming to think about all the options, especially if nobody really has the right experience or knowledge to know what they’re doing.
That’s why Egin was created. Our Peer Mentors are community members who have direct experience with taking action on climate change and sustainability at a local level – they might have already worked on a project really similar to the one you want to do in your own community. Spread across Wales, we have a variety of Peer Mentors will a range of skills and experience – which they are willing to share with you, to support and empower you to reach your goals.
Groups who sign up for Egin’s support can receive up to three days of Peer Mentoring, from one or more Mentors depending on your needs.
The Development Trusts Association (DTA) Wales, the organisation that runs Egin, also have Peer Mentors on our other programmes – such as Social Business Wales. At the moment, we are looking for Peer Mentors across all our programmes. If you have experience of social enterprise or community project, we want to hear from you.
We are especially keen to take on people with skills and experience in one or more of the following:
- Coding and strategy applications
- Income generation and financial strategy
- Business development and planning
- Community Asset Transfer
- Human Resources
- B2B Procurement readiness
- Health and Social Care
- Growing and Food Services
- Retail services, Sport and Tourism
- Community Asset/ Property Management
- Education and Training
- Climate Change and Sustainability
We are also especially keen to hear from people with personal or professional experience of working with individuals who identify as any of the following:
- Racially minoritised communities / ethnic minority groups
- People with disabilities (all types)
- Socio-economically Disadvantaged groups
- Young People
- Welsh Language speakers
Peer mentors are paid for the work they do – from £250-300 a day, depending on the programme and whether or not you are self-employed or hosted by a third-sector organisation.
Our latest round of applications should be in by Midday on Wednesday 22nd March 2023, although we will accept applications throughout the year (you might just have to wait until our next upcoming induction session).
