Outreach Volunteers

How do I become a Volunteer?

Our Support Volunteers have offered their time to support people living with enduring mental illness. Our Volunteers are aged 18+, and all have in common a motivation, enthusiasm, and willingness to support others through advice, empowerment, communication and listening. You will be carefully selected, with two references, a DBS check and will received training in Mental Health Awareness, Safeguarding Adults, Equality and Diversity. Home Visitors will also be first aid trained.

What happens when I first meet the client?

The Co-ordinator will introduce you to the client for your first session. You will agree and sign agreement with the client outlining your role and responsibilities.
The Co-ordinator will be in contact with you regularly to make sure you are happy with the service and make any adjustments necessary. We want you to enjoy the time you spend with the Client and feel confident in your role.

Who will the clients be?

Adults who live with enduring mental illness. We currently only offer these services to adults living in New Forest or Southampton.
