St.Helens Mind is a voluntary organisation working with people who are isolated due to mental health problems. We offer a Befriending Service to provide one to one support to individuals who are experiencing loneliness and isolation.


St.Helens Mind can provide a Volunteer Befriender to provide friendship, emotional or practical support.  We aim to improve the person's quality of life, helping them to become more independent as well as being more involved in the community.


St.Helens Mind also runs and supports Groups, has an allotment for people who access our Service and can signpost people to the relevant organisations or support.


Volunteers are vital to our work and are much valued. New volunteers are always needed to support local people who are facing difficulty due to mental illness.


Referrals to the Befriending Service can be made by the person themselves or by a GP, family member, social worker or other worker who has a professional input.


Further details about St.Helens Mind's service can be found under the relevant headings to the left of the page. If you have any queries please contact the team on 01744 647089

Get on Board!


St.Helens Mind is an independent local charity, working with people who are socially isolated due to mental health difficulties. We offer a Befriending Service to provide one to one support to individuals who are experiencing loneliness and isolation. We also run numerous social groups and have a popular, well stocked allotment.


We are also currently seeking new Board Members with experience and skills in the following areas:


•  Mental Health Policy, services or practice

•  Financial Management

•  Performance Management

•  Legal Matters

•  Human Resource management

•  Campaigning

•  Public Relations

•  Information Technology

•  Working within diverse communities


As a Member of the St.Helens Mind Board of Trustees, your practical knowledge and common sense will contribute towards discussions and decisions about the charity’s needs and priorities. Previous experience of working on a committee is not essential, neither is an awareness of charitable issues, indeed this may be your first opportunity to gain both.


Volunteering is rewarding and we are always looking for volunteers whose skills and enthusiasm can benefit the charity.


We are constantly developing and we are keen to recruit enthusiastic and motivated individuals who will play a future role in our future.


Can you help? Please email gill@sthelensmind.org.uk or telephone 01744 647089.
