We have around 100 dedicated volunteers who help us in all areas of our organisation and we could not provide the services we do without them.  Volunteers are of all ages, come from all walks of life and have a variety of skills and experience that they share with us. The one thing they all have in common is their willingness to give up some of their spare time to help others. In return, we can offer training and support to help them to get the most from their experience as a volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering, here are just some of the ways you can give your time and help the 1 in 4 who experience mental health problems:


…in the well-being centre

      • helping to steer the organisation and support and guide the staff, as a trustee
      • helping out with the office, reception and administrative jobs
      • providing IT support throughout the organisation
      • helping with newsletters and promotional events
      • supporting staff with the planning and organisation of fundraising events
      • working in the shop as a sales assistant, window dresser or assistant to the van driver collecting or delivering furniture.


…in the community

      • supporting our service users to participate in Health Walks and allotment groups or to go swimming or to the gym
      • supporting people who have been diagnosed with dementia – helping  them to go about their normal day to day activities in the community or working with  their family or carers


…at Ugly Duckling

      •  sharing your skills with our Ugly Duckling, furniture recycling and renovation project. If you like D.I.Y. painting, interior design, upholstery or sewing, then this could be the perfect outlet.
