Volunteer Training - Scarborough

16 January 2018

If your New Year’s resolution is to help others – Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind will  be holding new volunteer training sessions.

These are for people interested in providing one to one support or helping out at small groups and workshops.

The volunteer training sessions will also be held in Scarborough and will take place weekly from 1pm to 3pm on Tuesdays starting on Tuesday 16th January.

Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale Mind volunteers come from all walks of life and people don’t need any experience of mental ill health to join the team.

Natalie, who is also the charity’s volunteer co-ordinator, said: “Volunteering with us will give you the chance to change lives for the better and help people in distress to become more confident, more involved in community life and happier.

“You just need a desire to help others and a willingness to commit some time, whether its two hours a week to meet with a service user or two hours a month to help run an activity session at a group or workshop.

“Volunteering can be a great opportunity to use existing talents and develop new ones, undertake new activities, make friends, build confidence and make a positive contribution to your community.”

In return for people’s time, Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind provides high quality training, personal development opportunities, support and out of pocket expenses.

If you would like to volunteer for Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind please call Natalie on (01723) 356562 or email info@swrmind.org.uk
