Volunteering for Wiltshire Mind

Volunteers are essential to running our charity and the provision of our services, whether as trustees, office volunteers, Support Group volunteers, shop volunteers, event volunteers or as fundraisers. We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities, including supporting the office,  shop and Peer Support Groups including general activities.

We are very much indebted to our volunteers who contribute so much to Wiltshire Mind. Together they give so much of their time and energies to helping.

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

Current Volunteering Opportunities

We are currently recruiting, in particular, for people who would like to take our Stand to local events to raise the profile of Wiltshire Mind and to raise funds.  If this is something you are interested in, please make contact.

Are you someone that has experience dealing with mental health or wanting to make a positive change in your community?

Wiltshire Mind is committed to bring people together. We work with our volunteers to help educate communities about mental health and mental wellbeing. Our volunteer team helps people come together and learn new skills. Our volunteers also help us in the community by attending different community events, fundraising, school and business presentations too.

As a volunteer you will be an ambassador for us, representing our core values and beliefs. Volunteers play a vital role within our organisation and from day one as a volunteer you are a  part of the team.

Wiltshire Mind now has a Charity Shop in Church Street, Melksham.  There are also opportunities to volunteer in our shop.

If you are interested in becoming a ‘friend of Wiltshire Mind’ please contact us on 01225 706532.

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.
