Volunteering at Bath Mind can be a rewarding and worthwhile experience. Volunteering can bring many benefits as well – whether that’s learning new skills, rediscovering old skills and passing on skills, building confidence, meeting new people or feeling empowered and valued.

Bath Mind are proud to have over 40 volunteers that give their time to support our services, fundraising, communications and outreach in the community. 

We provide appropriate training, celebrations and regular supervision and appraisals and are incredibly grateful to all who volunteer their time to support our mental health charity.

Radstock Social Group Volunteer

We are seeking compassionate individuals to volunteer with our Radstock Wellbeing Group at The Swallows Community Café. As a volunteer, you’ll play a crucial role in:

  • Hosting our weekly social club and community café, offering a safe space for those feeling socially isolated or struggling with their mental health.
  • Providing informal mental health and wellbeing support in a non-clinical environment, creating a welcoming space for those in need.

You’ll receive a comprehensive volunteer induction and work closely with Bath Mind staff members during each session. We encourage individuals with direct or indirect lived experience of mental health challenges to apply, as you’ll receive support and understanding while gaining valuable skills and experience.

If you’re passionate about making a positive impact and don’t mind brewing a few cups of tea along the way, we want to hear from you!

What is it like to volunteer at Bath Mind?

Kat’s Story:

Hopespace is a warm and welcoming space where people feel safe. Staff and volunteers know how to offer positive support and take time to listen to the stories people bring. We try to be non-judgemental, while also being aware of how people present themselves and might be feeling…

During the session, we play board games, have a chat, see where they are with their benefits or other issues they may have. Maybe signpost to helpful organisations.

I believe in giving back to society and feel lucky that I can. It’s good to be part of your community and contribute, as I know that services across the country are stretched… I don’t need to be needed, but I was supported and want to keep that part of me alive. Even on a once a week basis, it’s about keeping that energy going. Being part of something is nice.
