AOP seeks volunteers for vital peer support line

The Association of Optometrists (AOP) is seeking members to volunteer for an important new service which aims to offer peer-to-peer support for those suffering with stress or anxiety.

The AOP peer support line will provide a listening service for qualified optometrists, dispensing opticians and students, and is designed specifically for the profession.

The service will provide callers with the opportunity to talk anonymously and in confidence to a fellow optical professional about stress they are facing in their work or home life.The service will be launched in early summer 2017. More information about this volunteer position and training available to support the role is available at www.aop.org.uk/peersupport
