Volunteers needed to support a mental health yoga session in Aldershot

Sport in Mind provides sports and physical activities for those experiencing mental health problems and are looking for enthusiastic, approachable and engaging volunteers to help at our sessions.

If you enjoy sport and would like to support a qualified coach to run a welcoming weekly session to help build an enjoyable friendly environment for our participants, then please do get in touch! The role will include welcoming new participant as well as the regular attendees, playing sport as well as helping with some setting up and tidying after sessions.

An understanding of how sport and physical activity can have a positive impact on your well-being would be helpful, but we do not require any experience of working with people experiencing mental health problems or playing sport, all you need is a willingness to join in, have fun and help engage others. This is a hugely rewarding opportunity, working with adults with a range of mental health conditions and sporting abilities.

Volunteers are a key part of our sessions; supporting the group to have fun, build confidence as well as friendships, making the sessions enjoyable for all.

Skills

Volunteers at this opportunity need to have a background of working in mental health, some experience of yoga is also desirable. Volunteers should be able to engage with our attendees and make them feel welcome and relaxed at the sessions.
