Wellbeing Service Volunteer
“I have watched the group expand and become a very close group, welcoming and homely. I am getting a great deal of satisfaction when enabling others to achieve things they never thought possible.”Current Wellbeing Service Volunteer
The Wellbeing Service provides short courses and peer support groups, helping people in their journey to improved wellbeing and better mental health. Wellbeing Service Volunteers help with our peer support groups. These groups focus on a range of activities including art, cooking, reading and music. Volunteers help to welcome people, and encourage them to engage in activities.
The groups take place in locations across Oxfordshire, in Wokingham, and online.
Training required: Oxfordshire Mind Volunteer Induction Training one day course, and half day wellbeing service training.
Time commitment: We ask for a commitment of 1 session per week (2 – 4 hours) for a minimum of 3 months. Volunteers should arrive before the session and stay for a debrief with staff at the end.
