Volunteers are vital to us
Without the help of volunteers, many of our
day-to-day activities would not be possible
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,

Please support our Positive Buddies Project
Our Aviva funding page is live until 14 October, by which

Positive Buddies project to recruit, train and support
20 volunteers to work with people whose lives are limited
by ongoing poor mental health.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has
helped to raise funds for Scarborough Survivors.
Donations have been received from a wide
range of activities, such as marathon runs, pub
gigs, cake stalls and boat races.
Every penny counts and great care and much
consideration is given as to how all unrestricted
funds can best be used to the benefit of our
members and the community we serve.
Thank you to all fundraisers for thinking of us!
