Mikeysline Wants You

Our volunteers are the backbone of Mikeysline, supporting us from the very beginning, generously giving their time, experience, energy and commitment to help others. 

We provide essential peer support, so our volunteers tend to have firsthand experience of mental health challenges in some aspect of their life, be it their own, friends, family, or professionally. But whatever your background, anyone who wants to help others, has the ability to listen and be empathetic with a desire to support people at an extremely difficult point in their lives, is most welcome to apply.

The truth is we could always do with more help. We are currently planning to provide more support in the Easter Ross area and are looking for more volunteers. If you live locally and would like to help support our young person's service in the Tain area and our support for adults and young people in the Evanton area, please see more information here.  


Why Volunteer?

You mean… apart from the fact that you’ll be actively making a positive difference in the lives of those who are struggling to cope? 

Well… of course there are a few other things you get out of being a volunteer for Mikeysline…

  • It’s just incredibly rewarding helping other people. So you feel good about yourself
  • You get to use your existing skills and experience to impact people’s lives
  • You’ll gain new skills, knowledge and experience you can use in your own life
  • You’ll meet new people, make new friends and be a valued part of the team
  • You’ll get to know your local community

And so much more…
