Thank-you for your interest in volunteering for Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind. All of our volunteers follow the same process to become a volunteer with the organisation. This involves:
- Filling in this application form.
- Attending a group interview.
- Attending our 3 day core training sessions,
- Induction into the organisation,
- Specific area or on the job training.
This ensure that every one of our volunteers experiences the same treatment and support across the organisation. Please note that a 12 month cooling off period applies to clients wishing to volunteer with TOG Mind. If you have any questions in regard to this please contact the office on 0161 330 9223.
With regards to dual relationships within the organisation, Tameside Oldham and Glossop Mind believe it is important to recognise the feelings that may be generated within a therapeutic relationship and the possible need for a period of time to pass for these to settle down again. Therefore Tameside Oldham and Glossop Mind do not allow individuals accessing services within the organisation, excluding using the café, to volunteer whilst accessing this service.
We appreciate that after using our services you might want to give something back and support the organisation however in order to maintain boundaries there will always be a 12 month “cooling off” period before a client can apply to be a volunteer.
