Take Stepping Stones to Volunteering this June!

Gain the skills, knowledge and self-belief to step into volunteering

 

Our Stepping Stones to Volunteering course is a three-session course covering the foundation skills, knowledge and self-care principles to become a volunteer.

At the end of the course participants will be offered on-going support to access volunteering opportunities with Mind in Harrow and other local organisations.

The next course enrolment will take place on Friday June 9th at 11am in the Mind in Harrow office, 132-134 College Road, Harrow, HA1 1BQ. The course itself will take place on the next three Fridays: June 16th, 23rd and 30th, also at the Mind in Harrow office. If you are not familiar with the location of the office, you can download this guide to finding us (PDF).

Could you volunteer for our mental health information helpline?

Mind in Harrow is currently recruiting volunteers for its helpline, a service that offers mental health support and signposting over the phone. The helpline is also part of the Support & Wellbeing Information Service Harrow (SWiSH), providing help to anyone in Harrow aged 18 or over who needs information about keeping safe and well. This includes information and advice about a wide range of local services, including where to keep fit and well, manage finances, join social groups, look for work, start a course, access help with housing or welfare benefits or apply for a personal budget.

We welcome applications from people of any age (18+), cultural background and life experience. We ask that you commit half a day per week (Mon-Fri) for a year.

Training will be offered over three days: the 22nd, 27th and 29th of June 2017. It will take place at Harrow Baptist Church, College Road, from 10am to 4pm.

If you are interested, please contact Leah Robertson on 020 8515 7862 or email l.robertson@mindinharrow.org.uk. You can find out more about the helpline on its webpage or via the volunteering opportunities page. You can also download the flyer for the training.
