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, including:

  • IT Assistant
  • Counselling
  • Art facilitator
  • Group work facilitator with WorkPlace Leeds and Peer Support
  • Administrative roles

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

We also look after the wellbeing of all our volunteers, offering them access to the same Mindful Employer Plus support that our staff have, and the opportunity to develop Wellness Action Plans.
