What Does a Network Facilitator Do?
She (or he) works about 12-16 hours a week in the Network—members are able to contact them most days, including weekends. Each network agrees how communication occurs.
She/he offers members advice and support, either on the phone, or by meeting up.
She/he encourages people to get on with each other and help each other out.
She/he helps members get some of the things they want in their lives, like learning about new things, work or getting a social life. She/he sometimes joins into social activities if members want her/him to.
