Volunteering at YoungMinds

Volunteering with us is an opportunity to get first-hand experience in the charity sector as well as to develop your knowledge of young people’s mental health issues.

We are very flexible with our volunteers’ hours in response to childcare or other needs, and offer expenses and a full training and development programme in return for your time.

To be the first to hear about volunteering opportunities as they become available, please join our mailing list.

Volunteering opportunities for young people

If you're a young person, here are some ways you join our movement. 

Internships, work experience and work placements

Unfortunately we do not offer clinical services to young people, so we are unable to support psychology/social work etc. placements at YoungMinds.

We are also not currently able to offer internships or accommodate work experience placements due to the lack of resources in the office.
