Get Involved >

The majority of our volunteers directly support members in our Mental Health Resource Centre and Crisis Cafe by engaging members in social contact – by helping with activities, coffee bar and reception. No experience is necessary. We welcome volunteers of all ages who are able to:

  • be welcoming and non-judgemental
  • respect our members and confidentiality
  • abide by our centre rules
  • regularly offer a few hours a week

All our volunteers receive training and support and several of our volunteers have gone on to take up paid roles. To find out more about volunteer opportunities with us or to request an application pack, please send a message:

Positive Buddy Volunteer

We aim to provide as much support for our members as possible. When someone has poor mental health, they find coping with day-to-day life more challenging.

A positive buddy offers one-to-one support to help empower clients to address their issues, such as:

  • Being a dedicated listening ear
  • Reducing isolation
  • Practicing techniques for better mental wellbeing
  • Reconnecting with their local community
  • Attending appointments for moral support
  • Increasing confidence and self-esteem
  • Advocating when required for the client
  • Working to reduce the stigma around mental health

In exchange for a commitment of 2 hours per week, positive buddy volunteers will receive in-house accredited training in suicide prevention and mental health first aid and safeguarding. An enhanced DBS check is required.
