Counselling and Psychotherapy Volunteers

If you are currently training in Counselling, Psychotherapy or Clinical Psychology and are looking for a clinical placement as a Volunteer Counsellor or Psychotherapist, please see our Counselling and Psychotherapy webpage for details of how to apply.  

Fundraising / Events Volunteer

RB Mind runs and takes part in a number of fundraising activities that aim to raise money for, and awareness of, the charity.  These events can be very varied and can include collections and bag packs at supermarkets, stalls at summer fairs, fundraising evenings such as quiz nights, and family all-day events like dog shows.  

We are looking for people who are comfortable in a people facing role and who are perhaps interested in a less regular volunteering role. Your role could range from collecting donations, to running a stall, to serving refreshments, to helping to set up and pack away, but you will be expected to speak to members of the public and assist them and answer any questions they may have about the event or RB Mind.
