Other ways to support us
There are many other ways you can support us, please see below:
Become a Friend of RB Mind
You can support RB Mind by becoming a Friend of RB Mind. As a member you will be making a small donation to help us to continue to run our valuable services and will be showing that you support RB Mind and those that suffer from or care for those experiencing mental health problems. You will receive a membership card and priority booking and invitations for our events.
Membership runs from April- March. You can become a member for one year by making a one off payment or if you’d like to become a member indefinitely please set up a standing order with your bank. If you join for the year we will send you a reminder when it is time to renew.
To become a Friend of RB Mind please download the Friends Of RB Mind Membership Form. This form contains information on how to make a payment and gift aid.
All completed forms should be sent to [email protected] or Friends of RB Mind, Richmond Borough Mind, 32 Hampton Road, Twickenham, TW2 5QB.
Volunteering with RB Mind
RB Mind is incredibly lucky to have the enthusiastic support of around 100 volunteers without whom our services could not flourish as successfully as they do. Volunteers support each of our projects in different ways such as: helping to run an activity group (e.g. drama, creative writing or music appreciation) in our Wellbeing Centre; making sense of figures and paperwork in the office; running stalls at our community fairs; cultivating a wide range of plants through our Ecotherapy projects; counselling and running groups; and so much more.
Please take a look at our volunteering page for more details on how you can get involved.
We welcome donations of food, clothing, blankets, bric a brac, any art materials, and musical instruments that could support service users completing their various well-being projects. Our projects provide recreational facilities and a place to learn new skills or build on existing ones. Arts and crafts, photography, pottery and computer workshops are just some of the activities which take place. Any donations of paper, crayons, paints, oils, clay, film and printer cartridges are invaluable to us. Either way, you can be certain that your donations will directly reach those those most in need.
Alternatively if you think you have a particular skill or gift that we could use for a fundraising event please let us know.
You can donate by contacting us via [email protected].
Become a Trustee or Advisor
Our Trustees are volunteers with a variety of skills and abilities. Some have been carers or users of mental health services previously and all our Trustees contribute to making RB Mind one of the key providers of mental health services in the Borough. They do this in their own free time. Hence, one of the most valuable contributions that you could make is to get involved as either a Trustee or an Advisor. Think you can rise to the challenge? If you do, then please email [email protected].
Recycling print cartridges
You can also raise money for us by recycling your inkjet printer cartridges. Contact [email protected] for your free envelope to recycle used cartridges and support us at the same time.
