Volunteering

“Inspiring, Rewarding, Challenging” – How volunteers describe their experience with Bucks Mind.

There has never been such a vital time for volunteers to come forward with their skills, passion and commitment.

Volunteers are essential to Buckinghamshire Mind’s work, enabling us to provide more vital, life-changing services to people experiencing mental health problems in Buckinghamshire and East Berkshire. We could not achieve all that we do to support people’s mental health without the involvement and huge contribution of our volunteers.

So, please join us today and be part of the Bucks Mind team providing encouragement, motivation and meaningful connections with people.
