Volunteers are a vital force in the voluntary sector and bring valuable skills and experience to our work.
- Volunteering is a great way for you to make use of your skills, get involved in your local community, meet new people and gain valuable experience while supporting the work of Kensington and Chelsea Mind.
- By volunteering with us you can help us make sure that anyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support.
- We will soon be recruiting a new community engagement worker. Once this role is filled, we will develop more volunteering opportunities and would be keen to hear from you if you have lived experience of mental health. Check back for more information!
Please note: we do not provide counselling at Kensington & Chelsea Mind, so we cannot offer voluntary positions to trainee counsellors or therapists.
