Would you like to share your skills and ideas, learn new skills and support people with mental health issues? Our volunteers make a vital contribution to our services and organisation.
What would I do?
Most volunteer activities involve working with and supporting people with mental health problems. We have opportunities in woodwork, gardening, printing, IT, ceramics, reception, publicity and fundraising. Find out more about the volunteering roles.
We are also seeking volunteer trustees who are interested in contributing to our development. Contact us for more information.
What is the time commitment?
We are looking for people who work well within a team and are available at least one day a week for a minimum of six months.
- Volunteers are essential to Restore’s work: they enable us to support even more people who have mental health issues.
- Volunteers share their experience, enthusiasm and skills to provide extra support for people who use our services.
- Volunteers benefit from opportunities to learn and practice a range of skills and to socialise with others.
- Volunteers may have opportunities to get involved in special initiatives and activities such as our strawbale workshop eco-project.
- If you are looking for a job in the voluntary sector or in social care volunteering with Restore provides valuable work experience.
- Volunteering with Restore is enjoyable and rewarding.
What do I do next?
Your first step is to register your interest by completing a volunteer application form online. Prospective volunteers will be invited to an informal interview, which offers the chance to talk to the volunteer coordinator, ask questions and find out about the different roles. Successful candidates take part in a training and selection process. Volunteers are offered training, supervision and support appropriate to their role. There is a four-week trial period for all volunteers.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us. We look forward to hearing from you!
