Changes Health & Wellbeing - Recruitment

Volunteering Positions

People volunteer their time to Changes for a number of reasons. It could be that someone has used the service, and want to give something back and to help others. For some it is a way to build self-confidence and self-esteem; as well as a way to get to meet other people. For others it is a way to feel like they are contributing to their local community – making a difference for the better, or simply to expand their own experiences. Volunteering improves your skills and employability as well.

Whatever the reason, volunteers are an invaluable part of the work that Changes does. Whether it is service delivery, office support, PR or cleaning - Changes could not operate without volunteers. Follow the links below to find out more about the volunteering roles available.

If you are interested in volunteering, please follow the links below for the contact details of the Wellness Centre closest to you.

Changes Volunteer
Coordinator Training Programme:

Changes are looking to recruit enthusiastic and committed volunteers of all ages to enrol on their FREE Coordinators Training Programme.

Volunteer Coordinators are required to deliver Changes' recovery focused Peer Support Groups for adults who are experiencing mental distress.

Anyone who feels that they are able to encourage and
support people in this challenging and rewarding area would be suitable - especially those who have personal or secondary experience of mental distress.

In addition to being personally rewarding, training as a Volunteer Coordinator provides certificates and credits (12 at level 2 and 9 at level 3) with the Open College Network West Midlands Region.

As well as Coordinating and Assisting Peer Support Groups, there are also a variety of volunteering opportunities at a later date if learners wish.

Full support will be given during the course, and the training sessions are flexible, with learners able to attend in the daytime or
