Psychosocial roster group of experts

The PS Centre enables National Societies to respond better to the psychosocial needs of vulnerable groups, which is achieved through capacity building, strategic consultations and operational support.

To support this work, a roster group was established in the late 1990s. The strength of the roster group is that it comprises a variety of different psychosocial support expertise both from the field and high-level organizational development. The composition of the roster group also aims to be geographically diverse with members from as many parts of the world as possible.

Over the years, roster members have undertaken many different types of interventions on behalf of the PS Centre, including psychosocial support trainings, capacity building, ‘caring-for-carer’ interventions, conducting psychosocial assessments and supporting psychosocial action in emergency settings.

All roster members are supported by their National Society in order to be able to assist the PS Centre on missions or as advisors on technical questions.
