Active 8 Programme

Currently MindWise has over 80 people volunteering in our Active 8 programme, all of who have added enormous value to our organisation and without their support many of our activities and events would not be possible.

Volunteers add value to MindWise services in a number of ways and also help to introduce new activities into services that otherwise would not happen. Volunteers are of fantastic support when it comes to MindWise’s lobbying, campaigning and fundraising activities.

Once the application process is complete, all volunteers also benefit from access to free training across a wide range of areas and they are reimbursed for all ‘out-of-pocket’ expenses they incur whilst volunteering.

MindWise Active 8 volunteer programme is particularly keen to recruit, train and empower individuals with mental health issues (however the programme is open to everyone) to support our overall ethos of recovery and inclusion.

Volunteers, as well as benefitting from free training, also get the opportunity to practice and develop new skills and to build their confidence and their experiences can also help them with their further study or employment prospects.

Volunteering can give you the opportunity to try something new, gain experience, develop skills, improve your career prospects, build confidence and meet new people.
