The journey of recovery from mental illness can be a difficult one with people battling not only their mental health symptoms, but also loss of confidence and self-esteem.
We are currently looking for volunteers to help at our Didcot site, and we’re particularly looking for people with woodwork skills. Could you help our Didcot members to gain new skills in woodwork and support them in building their confidence? We’d love to hear from you if that’s the case!
Currently, due to Covid-19 and social distancing requirements, we have had to put a hold on recruiting volunteers for our other recovery groups. We already have a waiting list of people waiting to start volunteering and so we can’t take any more applications for the other Recovery Group volunteer roles at present. Please keep an eye on our website for updates as the situation changes.
Support our members with mental health problems on their journey of recovery. This could involve encouraging a group of people to work in the garden or woodwork room, or maybe spend some one-to-one time with someone working on a craft project. Recovery Groups run at our five sites in Oxfordshire.
Time commitment: We ask for at least one day a week between 9am – 4pm, Monday – Friday at one of our Recovery groups.
Training: Recovery Group Volunteers must complete Introduction to Volunteer training and Mental Health First Aid training. See upcoming training dates here.
