From our activists to our Board of Trustees, our volunteers play a vital role in helping us make a real impact in improving children and young people’s mental health.
Celebrating National Volunteers Week
From 5 – 9 June we’re celebrating National Volunteer Week, highlighting all the amazing work that our volunteers do for YoungMinds. Without them, we would not be able to make such a big impact on children and young people’s mental health.
We want to say a huge thank you to each and every volunteer who gives up their valuable time to support and take part in the work we do.
We’re really lucky to have a great team of volunteers who help out in many ways across YoungMinds. Our volunteers include:
- our fundraisers who take part in a number of challenges and events to support our work
- our Parents Helpline Volunteers who provide support to parents in need every day
- our Youth Activists who lead campaigns and speak out about mental health
- our Board of Trustees and Youth Panel who give up their time to help us make the big decisions and reach more people every year
- our Amplified networks who are helping us change children and young people’s mental health services for the better
- our office interns who provide support to our office-based teams

Our volunteers' stories
Our volunteers tell us what it's like being a volunteer at YoungMinds, what they do, why they do it and what they gain.
Volunteer with the Parents Helpline
Support parents of children and young people with mental health issues by joining the Parents Helpline team.
Our helpline provides support and advice to parents and carers worried about the emotional wellbeing or behaviour of a young person in their care with confidential expert advice.
As a volunteer you’ll be a vital part of the Parents Helpline, which continues to be a lifeline for thousands of callers, helping more than 10,000 families per year.
