Volunteer with us
As a service, we are here to help the community of Southwark experience positive wellbeing. Our volunteers represent and empower residents who are marginalised, isolated, and facing stigma or difficult life experiences to get the right advice and help to move forward.
Being a volunteer with us is an opportunity to develop socially, professionally and personally. It gives you an insight into the charity and social care sector as part of a dedicated team.
What does it take to be a Volunteer?
As a volunteer, we look forward to supporting you in your personal and professional journey. In return we expect you to:
- Build positive relationships with those using the service and the staff team.
- Communicate effectively with the Volunteer Coordinator about your role.
- Be committed to continually learning about the service and the issues affecting our service users.
- Be reliable by giving your time and skills consistently.
We ask for a commitment of one day per week and require a minimum of at least six months commitment.
Beginning the role is dependent on completing training and shadowing as part of your induction. We will assess your readiness to begin the role and regularly review it with you.
Current volunteer roles
We have a range of volunteering opportunities to suit different skills and interests. All our volunteer roles are based in Southwark and involve working alongside people to support them through challenges relating to mental health.
