With 1 in 5 people in Northern Ireland now living with a mental health problem, our challenge to make sure no one faces caring for someone with a serious and enduring mental illness alone, has never been bigger. That's why we need people like you to volunteer your time in whatever way you can.

There are so many ways to get involved, from cheering on a marathon runner to volunteering in our offices. Whether it's minutes or months, hours or days, the time you give really does matter.

Why volunteer?

  • Feel rewarded - Using your time to give something back feels amazing. Each one of our volunteer roles helps make a real difference to the lives of people affected by a loved one’s severe and enduring mental illness. 
  • Meet like-minded people- Our volunteers are as diverse as our roles. Volunteering is a great way to meet other people with similar interests within your community.
  • Use your skills to help others - Whether you want to put your existing skills to good use or learn something new, we have a range of roles and training to support you.
  • Flexible- Whether you can give minutes, hours, or days, our volunteer roles are designed to fit around your available time.
  • Keep busy and active- From helping at events and collections to working with our team in head office, we have a range of activities to boost your physical and mental well-being.
