Mind in Camden
A mental health service provider for the borough of Camden. We promote wellbeing by providing services that support individual responsibility, independence, interdependence, and inclusion in the wider community. Volunteering is possible in the Phoenix Wellbeing and Recovery Service, and Healthy Minds Project which has two branches: our onsite Community Programme and our Social Prescribing Team…

The Healthy Minds Community Programme helps Camden residents reconnect with their community through a range of free courses, workshops and activities. With events hosted by the likes of British Museum, Central Saint Martins, Triyoga and more, we offer participants new opportunities to get involved in Camden life.

As an activities volunteer, you’ll attend and hold small group sessions to support members in engaging with physical activities, arts and crafts, adult education courses, storytelling workshops, museum tours and many more. You will act as a Mind representative, supporting sessions, and making members feel safe and comfortable out in the community.

Time commitment

Hours are flexible within the hours of 10-5 Monday-Thursday for a minimum of six months. We ask that you sign up for at least one session per week.
