What Could Someone Gain From This Role?

Athletic Minds is a force for change. Every single person who is involved, loves being involved and gets so much out of their time with us. We are actively changing the stigma surrounding mental health. These roles are rewarding and you will get out just as much as you put in. The roles will also provide valuable skills and experience with a ground-breaking charity that can be transferable to paid roles elsewhere.

Requirements and Benefits

Most of our roles will require a weekly commitment, but we also have some opportunities for ad hoc volunteering, such as at events for example or when we are running workshops. We offer reasonable expenses and references. We are offering all of our volunteers places on our workshops, including Mental Health First Aid and Suicide Intervention and Prevention training. You will meet new people and become part of a fantastic community.
