Volunteering

Volunteering can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience which can give you the opportunity to meet people, gain new skills, or move into paid employment. It can also enable you to use existing skills, add structure to your life or support a cause that is important to you.

Stockport and District Mind is committed to good practice in volunteering:

  • We provide appropriate induction, training and support.
  • We are committed to valuing diversity in the recruitment, selection and involvement of volunteers.
  • Volunteers’ contributions are valued and will be treated with respect.
  • We seek volunteers’ views on team and organisational issues.

Becoming a volunteer for Stockport and District Mind

The selection process for volunteers is based on the skills and interests of the volunteer and the current needs of Stockport and District Mind. It involves receipt of satisfactory references and possibly a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check if relevant to the role.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

We currently have two opportunities – one for a Reception Volunteer on Wednesday afternoons, and another for a volunteer for our new Connect group.

You can access the Role Descriptions below:
