Volunteer with us

Volunteering can be a really rewarding and useful experience – and there’s probably more ways of doing it than you might think.

Volunteering for Cornwall Mind

We couldn’t lead the fight for mental health without our volunteers. Cornwall Mind volunteers play a huge part in everything we do.

Volunteering can be a really rewarding and useful experience – and there’s probably more ways of doing it than you might think. From helping support our wellbeing groups, becoming a Trustee or helping organise our events, there are many ways you can give your time.

Here at Cornwall Mind we rely on our fantastic team of volunteers to help us deliver our services and support our day-to-day work. We’re very proud of the work that our volunteers do.

We offer a variety of roles and in return for your time and effort, we offer a supportive working environment, valuable work experience, involvement in social activities, the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge, access to training, supervision and out of pocket expenses.

You’ve probably got lots of questions about volunteering for us, please take a look at our Volunteering for Cornwall Mind Guide.

 We’re looking for a volunteer Trustee Secretary to join our dynamic Board.
 
Our Trustees play a vital role in making sure that Cornwall Mind achieves its core purpose. They oversee the overall management and administration of the charity.

We are a strong and welcoming team who are looking for someone to join our Board as a Trustee with skills to take the minutes of our meetings and undertake some general administrative tasks.
We’re seeking an individual with energy, enthusiasm and commitment to the role who will broaden the diversity of thinking on our Board.
