Support, supervision and training is provided, we offer volunteering opportunities for:

    • Mental health support workers

    • Complimentary/alternative therapists
    • Life coaches
    • Administrators and Receptionists

    The trustees of the Executive Committee also work in a voluntary capacity. The Committee’s main purpose is to run the charity and ensure it is meeting its aims and objectives.

    We recruit volunteers with key skills and experience in areas such as mental health service users and workers, the voluntary sector, management, finance and human resources.
