Volunteer Positions Available

Aberconwy Mind prides itself in providing on the job accredited training to our volunteers so that they can get the most from their time here and hopefully go on to find jobs using what they have learned while being here.

We arrange monthly formal meetings one on one with our volunteers to check that they are doing ok, any issues that they have they can raise them in a confidential environment and we will assist where possible to solve any issues/suggestions they have.

Mental health is our game, due to this we strive to make sure our employees & volunteers arn’t stressed. If this is the case we will try our best to change that situation and give assistance where possible.
