Recruiting for Support Group Volunteers

We are Recruiting for Support Group Volunteers

We are recruiting for volunteers who will support us within Support Groups across Wiltshire.  The role of a volunteer in these groups is to work with the Group Facilitator in order to create and safe and open space for service users.  Tasks may include setting up and clearing away, helping with refreshments and getting involved with group activities and discussions with group members.  A volunteer would need to be able to hold the group should the facilitator need to leave the room for a time within the session, however, they would not be expected to lone work as there will always be a member of the Wiltshire Mind team on site within the setting.

Although we are currently unable to open the groups due to COVID-19 guidance, we are recruiting for volunteers now ready for such a time when face-to-face groups can re-commence.  If your application is successful, a full DBS check will be carried out.

Details of the groups are as follows:

  • Chippenham  –  Mondays 10am – 1pm
  • Devizes  –  Tuesdays 10am – 1pm
  • Malmesbury  –  Mondays 10am – 1pm
  • Melksham  –  Wednesdays 1pm – 4pm
  • Salisbury  –  Fridays 10.30am – 1.30pm
  • Tidworth  –  Thursdays 10.30am – 1.30pm
  • Trowbridge  –  Fridays 10.30am – 1.30pm
