Why volunteer with MindSpace?
Many people volunteer for MindSpace, and we value their commitment and hard work. We could not operate without the dedication of our volunteers who do a tremendous job helping people with mental health problems.
What does volunteering with MindSpace involve?
Volunteering is not just about attending the premises for sessions. As a volunteer at MindSpace, you will be making connections and helping those with mental health challenges. Depending on the session you support, volunteering responsibilities can range from making sure everyone has a hot drink & piece of cake, to leading your own group.
Ideally, we require a regular weekly commitment to a session you are supporting, so we can ensure consistency in allowing the session to take place and that this is done safely for our volunteers and members.
How do I become a MindSpace volunteer?
We encourage you to come along to our sessions (click here to book in) to experience what MindSpace has to offer within the local community, and have a chat with our volunteer co-ordinator. Following your introduction to MindSpace, the next step is to complete an application form and provide two references, which can be either professional references or from people you know
Once your application form has been processed and the session you are supporting agreed, you will undertake an induction.
