Volunteer opportunities - Covid-19 Response 

A massive thank you goes out to our existing volunteers who continue to support our work at this difficult time.  Volunteers are at the heart of our services so it is with regret that we find ourselves in a position where were are unable to offer new volunteer opportunities relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Adjusting to different ways of working,  whilst supporting our clients and existing volunteers leaves little capacity for us to induct and train new volunteers to standards that our clients are accustomed to.  Our website will be updated as new opportunities become available so please keep checking back.  In the meantime, thank you for your continued support.


Volunteer opportunities

Volunteers are engaged in a variety of roles throughout the organisation. From counselling and advocacy to fundraising and administration. We rely on volunteers to help deliver our services supporting people recovering from mental ill health.

Volunteers are a valued part of our team and we work hard to ensure that our volunteers have a rewarding experience. As a volunteer, you will receive an induction, training and ongoing support.

Please note that we only accept applications for current positions advertised. General applications will not be considered. All prospective volunteers are asked to complete an application form. This can be downloaded here. If your application is shortlisted you will be invited to attend a volunteer interview for us to find out a bit more about you and for you to find out a bit more about York Mind. We generally ask for a minimum six-month commitment from all volunteers except for fundraising volunteers where there is no minimum commitment.

New opportunities come up regularly, so if the volunteer roles which are currently advertised are not suitable do keep checking the website for a role to suit your skills and interests.
