Volunteering at Mind in Haringey

Volunteering is a valuable opportunity to find your way back into the work place or change your career entirely. We welcome committed and enthusiastic volunteers to help us deliver flexible, innovative and exciting projects and services. Plus it's a great opportunity to expand your skills and knowledge.

After being unemployed for over a year and having a year of total rejection, it was great to work with people who valued me and who wanted me to work for them.
My volunteering experience has been totally positive and has been so much more rewarding than just simply having something to put on my CV - Michael Sugrue, Volunteer Administrative Assistant      

We apologise in advance if we are not always able to respond to applications promptly.
