Volunteer and help make a difference

Volunteering is a very rewarding experience and an invaluable resource to our Trust.

Volunteers bring time, energy, life experience and commitment. Their contribution has significant value and makes a real difference to individuals, the communities where we live and society overall.

The free time that our volunteers willing give, helps support the delivery of our services and has never been more important. Their contribution help promote hope, recovery and social inclusion.

Volunteering can help you to:

  • meet new people
  • gain new skills and experience
  • improve your job prospects
  • increase your confidence
  • be an active member of your community
