Volunteering is a great way to help others, learn new skills and connect with like minded people.
It’s also a great way to build your own confidence and give something back to the local community.
We couldn’t do what we do without the help of our amazing volunteers. It really is that simple.
Why volunteer for us?
We support over 15,000 local people every year and that number keeps on rising.
Our team of paid staff work alongside and rely on the contributions of volunteers to deliver our services and reach as many people as possible.
For us to do what we do, we need people to volunteer with us and dedicate their time and skills to make a difference.
What does it mean to volunteer with us?
Volunteers are part of the team here at Teesside Mind. We work hard to ensure that all our volunteers have an enjoyable and rewarding experience whilst with us.
From peer support to Appropriate Adults; telephone befrienders to fundraising stewards, we rely on volunteers to help deliver our services. They’re at the heart of our organisation and we make it a priority to help them get the most out of their time with us.
We take our responsibilities seriously and when you become part of the team you’ll receive an induction, training and ongoing support that’s appropriate for your role.
How can you get involved?
There are so many different ways you can get involved depending upon your interests, experience and commitments.
Take a look at the current roles we’re looking to fill, but if you’re unsure of what you’d like to do then you can call the team and work together to find something that’s right for you.
We currently have 76 volunteers supporting 8 of our projects and services.
Last year our Appropriate Adult volunteers dedicated 8,762 hours of their time to help vulnerable adults detained in police custody.
Doing something kind and giving back is good for your mental health.
