Volunteer With Us
We have volunteering opportunities available for individuals and businesses looking to make a positive impact.
If you’re looking to help us in our mission to enable people with mental health challenges to live their lives to the full, then you’ve come to the right place. Find out about current volunteering opportunities below.
1. Volunteer at Events
At the moment, we are particularly looking for individuals to help support at our fundraising events, which are raising money to improve our mental health services. This is a fun and easy way to support Response on a regular or ad-hoc basis. Future events that you could get involved with include Quizzes, Barbecues, Fetes, Fun-Runs, Gala Dinners and many more! Find out more about volunteering at events below.
2. Offer up your venue!
Do you have a venue or garden we could use? Do you have access to some gardens, a school playing field or grounds which would be suitable for a fundraising barbecue, garden party or picnic? Are you a venue or pub looking to do some good? You could help us hold an event and save lives. No matter how big or small your venue, get in contact and let's collaborate and have some fun while we're at it!
2. Become a Trustee
We are also particularly interested in finding individuals who can volunteer their time as Trustees for the organisation. Join our board of Trustees and help shape the strategic direction of the organisation. If you have a genuine passion for our mission, and can dedicate your time to us over a longer period of commitment as a Trustee, have a look at our vacancies area below.
