Universal Credit Claim Support Volunteer

We currently have a backlog of volunteer applicants, so at present we are not taking on any new applications to volunteer with us. We look forward to welcoming new applicants in the future, and in the meantime please feel free to get in touch with us at volunteering@oxfordshiremind.org.uk if you have any questions. 

Our Universal Credit Claim Support volunteers help clients claim and understand their entitlement to Universal Credit, a new benefit that has been brought in across Oxfordshire.

Training required: Oxfordshire Mind Induction Training one day course, plus two days of Benefits for Better Mental Health training and two days of shadowing.

Time commitment: minimum of one 4 hour session each week (based in the BBMH offices in Oxford), involving face to face and telephone contact with clients.


We’re a sociable bunch
