Could you be a SWiSH Helpline Volunteer?

    Mind in Harrow is currently recruiting volunteers for our helpline, a service that offers mental health support, signposting and referral 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 subject to a successful interview: the 20th, 23rd and 27th of September 2019. It will take place at The Mind in Harrow meeting room, 132-134 College Road, Harrow, HA1 1BQ.

    If you are interested, please contact Leah Robertson on 020 8515 7862 or email [email protected]. You can find out more about the helpline on the SWiSH webpage and download an application form via our volunteering opportunities page.
