The time committment per week varies depending on the number of people a Peer-Mentor is matched with at any one time. This number is entirely up to the Peer-Mentor.

Peer-Mentors make calls from the comfort of their home, or other suitable location (quiet, private space). So there is no travel requirements.

Peer-Mentors initially complete special training before being matched with people for peer support. This requires access to a computer and a phone to complete, and provides all the information and tools needed for the role.

Peer-Mentors must have lived with arthritis, or cared for a child living with arthritis, ideally for at least around two years.

There is no specific experience required, but Peer-Mentors should be comfortable sharing their own story with others, and be able to communicate with empathy.
