Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time; they just have the heart. Whatever reason brings you to our volunteering page, there is always a chance to give something back, for a cause close to your heart, for the benefit of our community or to learn a new skill. Volunteering not only feels good, but research shows it can improve your own mental health – win,win!
As a charity we are serious about the quality of our services and the importance of having the right people. Delivering our strategy and ensuring we have the best people working for us means that fundraising for experienced qualified staff forms part of our fundraising plan. Our aims include helping those in need, and to do that we must run as a professional business, be resourceful, effective and sustainable.
To keep our core costs low, we welcome support from professionals with certain business skills. Perhaps you are an IT expert, creative in media or marketing ? Whatever your skillset, donating your time, either a one-off use of holiday time, or on a regular basis, it could be the greatest experience of your time.
Changing the culture of workplace mental health comes in many forms, but it must start at the top. If your company or employer supports staff’s mental health and encourages employees to give back to the community what better way than to offer We Mind & Kelly Matters your services pro bono. Whether that is legal advice, public relations, financial auditing, you can ensure that we will work with you to align your corporate social responsibility strategy and ensure everyone benefits.
