Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteers are engaged in a variety of roles throughout the organisation. From counselling and befriending to fundraising and administration, York Mind relies on volunteers to help deliver its 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 a full induction, training and ongoing support as required.
