I love volunteering at Mental Health Resource. It has a naturally warm and welcoming energy. I've met so many amazing people and my life feels much richer because of it. I look forward to coming in on Fridays; it's very quickly become my favourite day of the week!" Kimberley, Hub volunteer.

Volunteer roles at Mental Health Resource

Volunteers are at the heart of Mental Health Resource and we're so grateful to everyone who gives their time and energy to help drive our charity forward and break down the stigma surrounding mental illness.

No matter how much time you have available, we will always work to find a way in which you can support our charity. 

What can volunteers do?

In the past, volunteers have supported us in the office with:

  • Social media promotion
  • Graphic design and marketing
  • Corporate Partnership development

Volunteers have also supported at our projects, including:

  • Giving workshops at Reachout Youth and The Hub such as puppet making, screen printing or yoga/ mindfulness.
  • Becoming a 'befriender' to clients in the community who might be housebound
  • accompanying clients on a walk around the local area
  • reading or helping clients with simple form filling or administration
  • assisting our wellbeing art tutors
  • delivering literacy and numeracy workshops
  • cooking and preparing community lunches

Volunteers have also taken part in Corporate Volunteer days to:

  • run fundraising events 
  • clean spaces at our allotment or Hub building
  • paint our lounge and our art room
