Help out at our fun, enjoyable and friendly sessions

Sports coaching volunteers needed for Sport in Mind in RG5

Join the ever growing volunteer ranks at Sport In Mind!

We run physical activity and sports session for people experiencing mental health problems. You will be assisting our session coach in setting up the session, joining in with the activities and encouraging the group.

Our volunteers play a huge part in our sessions and they contribute greatly to the fun, enjoyable and friendly sessions that we run.

Experience playing a sport is a help, but not entirely essential. If you have experience of mental health, or supporting someone who has then that is also a help, but again not essential.

As a volunteer for Sport In Mind you certainly will get back as much if not more than what you put in!
