Volunteers give their time freely to The Centre For Better Health and make a real difference to the quality of service we are able to offer
We value the dedication and commitment of all our volunteers and couldn’t provide the range and mix of services without them. We also aim for these volunteering experiences to meet an individual’s own personal goals.
We run our affordable counselling service with the commitment of our volunteer counsellors.
Those who are not yet qualified must be enrolled on a recognised Diploma Counselling Course. We would particularly welcome applications from more experienced counsellors e.g. those who already have 50+ clinical hours. Click here to read about a volunteer counsellors experience.
Volunteers at Better Health Bakery
Volunteers bakers at the Better Health Bakery support trainees on 3 month placements in the social enterprise. You will learn how to bake real bread according to traditional sourdough principles and support our trainees in their training.
Volunteer bike mechanics
Better Health Bikes needs volunteer mechanics to help with bike recycling and trainee support. This is an interesting and exciting opportunity for someone who is a keen bicycle mechanic, interested in recycling and supporting good mental health in the local community.
You ideally will already be confident with a spanner and have some basic knowledge. Volunteers work in a professionally equipped bicycle workshop with a team of Cytech qualified mechanics. We are looking for volunteer mechanics that can give one day a week for at least 3 months.
Volunteer course/workshop provider
Got a skill and a passion you want to share with your local community? Volunteers can work with The Centre for Better Health to plan and deliver or support a tutor on courses and groups. The nature of these courses and workshops vary depending on the volunteers own interests and experience, as long as it broadly fits aims of promoting wellbeing and encouraging participation in the community.
There are no specific qualifications required to be a volunteer and you do not need any formal teaching qualifications, you just need to be passionate about your area of expertise and confident in sharing that.
