Volunteering with St.Helens Mind
We currently have around 60 volunteers, without whom we could not run any of our services and support so many local people. They give freely of their time, experience and enthusiasm and we are eternally grateful to them. Although all our volunteers go the extra mile, some have offered their services across the board, helping at, and facilitating groups, befriending and helping to promote our work and attract even more volunteers.
All we ask is that each volunteer is aged 18+, willing to commit a couple hours a week of their time, attend an induction an be preapred to have fun, learn new skills, gain confidence, meet friends and make a massive difference to the lives of the people we support.
Volunteers are needed as befrienders, to support someone on a one to one basis for 2 to 3 hours a week, click here for Information Sheet
We also need volunteers to help faciliate our groups. We have several around the borough and need dedicated, caring and practical volunteers for various roles to keep the groups running smoothly.
Events and Fundraising Volunteers help us to promote the service, identify way to raise funds at events or in public locations and lend a hand meeting the public and giving out information about the work we do in St.Helens.
Volunteers help on our allotment and in the kitchen garden. Both sites need volunteers who are interested in gardening or who would like to help the people who use our servce to enjoy the outdoors, chat with friends, grow flowers and vegetables and relax.
Activities Volunteers are those who may have a specific skill or hobby they would like to share. These volunteers tend to help out generally in other areas but can be called upon to take sessions such as craft activities, meditation, art or reading for wellbeing.
