Volunteer

We recognise that committed volunteers are essential to the effective running of the organisation and the provision of our services, whether as trustees, office volunteers, Support Group volunteers, shop volunteers, event volunteers or as fundraisers. At present we have a wide range of volunteers supporting the office, Peer Support Groups and general activities.

We are very much indebted to our volunteers who contribute so much to Wiltshire Mind. Together they gave over 2,500 hours of their own time in 2012-13. Without them Wiltshire Mind could not function.

If you have a few hours to spare, why not volunteer for Wiltshire Mind?

Become a Trustee

Wiltshire Mind is managed by a small committee of volunteer Trustees, providing guidance and direction to the charity. Trustees are people who are committed to the values and aims of Wiltshire Mind and who will be enthusiastic about supporting us and our client members. They bring their own life experiences to the role but may also have a range of skills which could include knowledge of the mental health services as a user or carer, financial, fundraising or business skills.

If you are thinking about becoming a Trustee, please get in touch.  Further information regarding becoming a trustee can be obtained from the Charity Commission telephone 0870 3330123 or visit www.charitycommission.gov.uk.
