All of our volunteers are safeguarded in part by a time management system that is in place to ensure that they don’t overwork and begin to suffer from mental ill health themselves. We know that, in order to provide support for those in need, our volunteers must look after themselves. We are committed to giving our volunteers all they need to preserve their own wellbeing.
Mind Allies has a sociable culture. This is necessary to ensure we can do everything we can for people who come to us for support and to maintain and create a healthy working atmosphere for our staffs and volunteers. Our team may come across difficult, heartbreaking or traumatising stories or experience and as an organisation, it is our duty to ensure that at the end of the day it has no negative impact on our volunteers and staffs. Building a social environment enables our teams to communicate, to open up, to understand and support each other as they provide the care and support to the public.
Volunteering with Mind Allies gives you the opportunity to work on the front lines of Mental Health Support, having a direct positive impact on the lives of those suffering mental ill health. We are committed to investing in our volunteers, giving the opportunity to learn new skills, expand their CVs and gain experience in a wide range of aspects of mental healthcare.
We rely on our volunteers’ real investment in the future of the organisation. We are committed to listening to volunteer experience and expertise, and allowing their input to shape the future of Mind Allies. Not only can volunteers learn and grow their own portfolio, Mind Allies is a place where volunteers are taken care of, where their mental well-being is a priority, and where they are given benefits and rewards for their time and work.
