Do something amazing  

We are always looking for volunteers who can give some time to improving the lives of those in need. You can volunteer as a student counsellor, a helpliner, as group facilitator, a befriender, to work in our Charity Shop, or offer your specialist skills, e.g. admin, fundraising, social media !  

The work of our volunteers has a profoundly positive impact on those who are mentally unwell, vulnerable, isolated and in need of help. Without the help of volunteers we could not help as many people as we do.   Thank you. 

We are currently updating this website page. If you require any info about volunteering with us please contact volunteering@basmind.org and you will be directed to the correct person. Please come back again, to see the changes we have made.


How much time will I have to commit to? 

You can give as much or as little time as you are able. From one off events to regular weekly groups or befriending. 

Is there an age limit for volunteers? 

From 16 upwards.  

Does volunteering affect any benefits I receive 

Volunteering is an excellent way to improve your opportunities and skills for work; if you are currently in receipt of benefits it’s always a good idea to talk to your adviser at the DWP about volunteering. 

Will I get training for the role 

Yes, training and support is given throughout your volunteering with us.
