Celebrating Volunteers

Celebrating Volunteers

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.

I enjoy coming into the office with a sense of purpose, knowing that everyone here works together for a great cause.

Our volunteers

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
I absolutely did not go into this with my own children in mind, but the development of my knowledge and understanding together with the skills I have learned through the training is helping my parenting skills.

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.  

Join the team
We’re there to help them through and provide some good help and advice about what to do next.
