Volunteer Mentor

We are looking to recruit volunteer mentors to work on a one to one basis with adults who are experiencing low to moderate level difficulties with their mental health/emotional wellbeing.

Mentoring will be delivered in one hour sessions every week for up to 12 weeks.  Volunteer mentors will work with people to increase resilience, independence and equip people with increased coping strategies.  Mentors will use a recovery star tool to enable people to set personal goals with support and work towards small actions independently.

The sessions can take place at Doncaster Mind or in the community providing these sessions are linked to personal goals or actions.

Training will be provided to equip you for this role which can be both challenging and rewarding as you encourage someone to take positive steps in their life.
