Unfortunately we are not currently taking on any new Young People’s Project volunteers 

We are recruiting volunteers for our young people’s project. This is an exciting new project for Sunderland Mind.

Drop In Volunteer

The Drop-In is managed by Lesley who is a paid member of staff.  She relies heavily on volunteers to assist in its smooth running.  Drop-In volunteers are responsible for helping to serve refreshments, supervising service users, and generally promoting a good social environment for people with mental health issues. Volunteers should have good social and listening skills and preferably have some awareness of mental health issues.  Training and Ongoing training/support is provided.
