Community Minded is a project that will support you to give back to your local community, via volunteering or setting up your own community action groups. Central to the project is the belief that a good volunteering experience is good for your mental health.
You don’t have to commit lots of your time. You don’t have to go through complicated application processes and it’s ok if you don’t feel confident.
Our experienced staff will meet with you 1:1 and get to know you. Together you will form a personalised plan that will include:
- support to increase your skills and confidence
- access to our unique “Get Ready to Give Back” training course where you will meet other like-minded people, learn practical skills that will prepare you for volunteering and build your confidence
- support to find the right opportunity for you to volunteer, in a way which suits you and fits into your life
- support to set up a community group or activity that helps to support others.
