Mind BLMK has lots of different volunteering roles that are essential for us to help as many people as we do – everything from helping with admin at HQ, to being a mentor and supporting someone in their community. We provide training and support, pay travel and expenses and we see our volunteers as an essential part of our workforce. Without our volunteers, we would really struggle.

Take a look at the options we have. If you see something you think would work for you, fill in the form and let’s get started!

Volunteer Buddy (Hoarding Project), Bedford

Are you looking for an opportunity to support others in challenges they face, do you have knowledge around hoarding issues and how it can affect people’s wellbeing? Do you live locally to Bedford? Can you spare 2 hours a week?

If so this could be for you, we are launching our Hoarding Support Programme to start March 2021 and we are looking for Volunteers to provide one to one support to each Service User under the Hoarding Support Programme. Ideally you will have previous experience in one to one work, knowledge of hoarding and how it affects individual daily life. We feel this opportunity would particularly suit volunteer counsellors (however this is not limited to or an essential requirement), although this is not a counselling service, the listening skills, empathy and practical tools used in counselling would be beneficial in this service.

You would be supporting the service user in their CBT based peer support sessions as well as working with them over the phone or in person (under review due to COVID-19 restrictions). You would need to be confident in working with someone one to one and have good knowledge of safeguarding and following lone working instructions.
