Our Richmond Fellowship Life Links service in Leicestershire is currently looking for volunteers.
We provide a wellness and mental health recovery service tailored to meet individuals needs.
Our information, advice and navigation services can help find community and digital resources that will help to achieve your recovery outcomes, make independence more sustainable and provide support in developing support networks.
Our community recovery support is available as an individual or as part of a wider group and can be provided at a local community venue. The support we offer focuses on strengths, needs and future aspirations.
Volunteers will be working alongside staff to provide support to those experiencing mental ill health through our information, advice and navigation service.
Volunteers will be delivering this service via a phone line and monitoring our website. This will also be provided out in the community at our open surgeries and at events. Another opportunity we have is becoming a Peer Support group volunteer. This includes helping to facilitate peer support groups for those who have lived mental health experience. These opportunities are a great way to get experience working alongside those experiencing mental ill health and is extremely rewarding.
We need people with empathy, excellent listening skills and a non-judgmental attitude. You do not need any previous experience as you will be provided with full training and an opportunity to develop this further if you wish. We need reliable volunteers who are able to dedicated a minimum of 6 months of their time to our service.
We welcome volunteers and really appreciate their commitment and efforts as they are essential to the services we provide. Continuous support is provided.
