Volunteer Opportunities – Peer Support
Help us help others
We believe that everyone has value and has something to offer.
“I wanted to volunteer to help others and to ‘give back’ to some of the amazing services that I truly believe have saved my life over the years.”
Volunteering at Manchester Mind can be a really rewarding and worthwhile experience and it can bring many benefits too – whether that’s learning new skills or rediscovering old skills and passing on skills, building confidence, meeting new people, being valued. When we volunteer in any way we build our own positive mental health.
We are currently looking for volunteers to support our Peer Support Groups.
Peer Support Volunteers required to help facilitate one of our groups. We have two online groups at present, Wednesdays and Fridays afternoons. We are currently exploring a return to face to face at some point this year and with this eventuality are likely to continue one online group, probably on a Thursday. You need lived experience of mental health issues, an interest to support mental health and wellbeing, be able to commit to the role for at least six months, and live in the Manchester city council area; other criteria are given in the role description. We will provide training and support for the role.
