Age NI Peer Facilitator

Age NI

Age NI is the leading charity for older people in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland is facing a significant shortage in nursing staff across the five Health and Social Care Trusts. This is presenting real challenges for nurse retention, especially in the care of older people. Project Retain aims to support nurse recruitment and retention in care of older people by embedding a culture of ‘open and transparent communication across all bands and disciplines of staff’.

Age NI is now recruiting volunteer facilitators to participate in Project Retain.

As an Age NI  Peer Facilitator your role will be to assist with the facilitation of focus groups involving a range of bands and disciplines of nursing staff across the five Health Trusts. Supported by Age NI, you will talk about what really matters to older people who are receiving health and social care services.

Skills needed:

  •  If you have a keen interest in older people’s issues, then we would love to hear from you.
  •  Empathy and understanding, good listening and communication skills, and the ability to facilitate conversations from an impartial position.

What’s in it for me?

  • The opportunity to make a real difference in shaping the future of nursing in the care of older people
  • Bespoke training in listening and facilitation skills provided by Age NI
  • A chance to meet and engage with like-minded people
  • Flexible participation - we work with what suits you!
  • Out of pocket expenses reimbursed
