Here at Leeds Mind we rely on the assistance of a great many volunteers to help us deliver our services and support our day-to-day work.  We are very proud of the work that our volunteers do.  We offer a variety of roles that you can get involved with, and would also be very interested to hear if you have any new ideas that you would like to support us with.

In return for your time and effort, we offer a supportive working environment, valuable work experience, involvement in social activities, the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge, access to training, supervision and travel expenses.
