Job description

We are seeking compassionate and empathetic people to assist us in running online peer support groups. This is an exciting opportunity to join us, and develop existing skills and learn new ones, while supporting people in need.

About Us

We are Borderline Support UK CIC, a non-profit organisation which is entirely volunteer-run and is led by our service users who are living with, or affected by, borderline personality disorder (BPD). We provide support and information to anyone in the UK affected by BPD. Every year we support more than 2000 people through our peer support groups and support services. We support people diagnosed with BPD, those who are living with symptoms, and their loved ones.

  • Assist with the smooth running of the group
  • Ensure the group is a welcoming, safe and supportive environment
  • Chatting with group members and putting them at ease
  • Encouraging open and honest conversations
  • Listen to ideas and concerns to ensure the ground rules of the group are followed
  • Assisting the group facilitator to develop, prepare and deliver activities
  • Flag any issues with the group facilitator


We welcome applications from people with different and varied skills, for this role we are particularly looking for:

  • Lived experience of BPD and/or mental health

Volunteers will be required to undergo a DBS check, and complete induction and basic training before commencing the role. Volunteers must be over 18, and have the right to live and work in the UK.
