Volunteer With Us

Thank you for your interest in Mikeysline.

 

New volunteers needed! 

We are currently planning to provide more support in the Easter Ross area and are looking for some additional 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.  You can find an application form at the bottom of this page.

 

We also welcome applications from people wishing to volunteer with us in one of more of the following areas: 


  • Providing direct support to others through our text and multi-communications line.
  • Working with us in our crisis drop-in centre, the Hive.
  •  Supporting us to raise awareness about our work and break down the stigma of mental health
  • and suicide through attending events and distributing leaflets on our behalf.
  • Helping us to fundraise/fundraising on our behalf
  • Providing admin/social media support

 

At Mikeysline, we provide peer support, as such, our volunteers tend to either have had firsthand experience of mental health challenges in some format, be it their own, people close to them, family, friends or in a professional context.  Whatever your background, crucial to this role, is the ability to listen, be empathetic and a desire to support people at what can be extremely difficult points in their life.

Please find our application form below.  As we work with vulnerable individuals all applicants require 2 satisfactory references and a Protection Vulnerable Groups (PVG) check as part of our recruitment process. There will also be core training which you will need to attend following your interview.
