Volunteering Opportunities

Wellbeing Hub Volunteers

Volunteers play a key role in running and developing the Wellbeing Hubs. By being friendly and supportive you will provide a safe place for people to come to get advice, support, access counselling services or have a chat. Volunteers will be required to answer phone enquiries, take appointment bookings and welcome people coming into the Hub.

Allotment Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to work on the allotment alongside people with mental health problems, provide a warm welcome and give any help that is required.

Group / Activity Leaders

They would like groups to help deliver the five ways to wellbeing:

  • connecting with others
  • keeping active
  • taking notice
  • taking part in social and community life
  • learning new things.

Volunteers are needed to run activities such as: creative writing; a Book Club; music; art; history; politics; health and fitness.
