We are looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to help with our Sunday Coffee Club.

Our Coffee Club:

Our Coffee Club is for people identifying with mental-ill health and who are managing their well-being. It provides a safe and supportive environment where people can socialise and meet others. The club is relaxed and informal with a focus on reducing isolation and creating positive connections.

  • Provide a listening ear to people dropping into the Coffee Club
  • Join in group activities-, e.g, Themed Coffee Afternoons, playing games, quizzes, etc.
  • Make drinks and serve refreshments to customers.

The Coffee Club will not provide any advice, guidance, crisis or support work.

Volunteer requirements:

  • Great communication skills are a must for this role
  • A non-judgmental and person centred approach
  • A willingness to engage in social activities
  • An approachable and empathetic attitude
