There are plenty of ways to support us as a fundraising volunteer; from getting involved in events and coordinating the distribution of collection tins to processing donations and supporting our generous donors and fundraisers. You may be asked to attend events in aid of our charity, support our funding pitches or run a fundraising campaign of your own.
We rely heavily on our volunteers to help us to raise vital funds which support the fantastic work of our charity and this couldn’t be done without them.
As many of our events are held during the evenings and weekends, being a fundraising volunteer is a flexible role, you may be asked to attend external events or spend the day in our wellbeing centre and assist with our admin work or promotion.
Whether you feel confident becoming a volunteer to support our office work, or want to be out working directly with the public. We’d love to hear from you!

Volunteers are a central part of our organisation which means where and when we can invest in volunteers, we do so. All volunteers attend core training and have access to our internal training.
Recently we have placed a few volunteers on our Community Mental Health Course Level 2, and before that we supported a group of volunteers to become trained Mindfulness Practitioners. Though we can’t routinely offer this training to our volunteers, this is something we strive to do as an organisation.
Over 50% of our staff started off working for Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind as a volunteer, where possible we aim to recruit from our volunteer pool. Any sessional work or paid roles are usually advertised interally first giving our volunteers an opportunity to apply for a paid role.
