Volunteering

If you have opportunities for volunteers which you would like to advertise on this website please contact admin@mentalhealthsupport.co.uk

Volunteers give freely of their time and expertise in order to make a difference. Volunteering can help you:

  • Make important networking contacts
  • Learn or develop skills
  • Gain work experience
  • Build self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Improve health
  • Help you meet new people
  • Feel needed and valued
  • Make a difference in someone’s life
  • Express gratitude for help you may have received in the past from an organisation
    Whether it is important to you to solve a community problem, advance a worth cause or to develop as a person, volunteering offers many benefits in appreciation for the gift of your time and expertise.

Volunteers are people from all walks of life, all ages and stages. What they have in common is the desire to make a difference in their community – and in their own life – by giving of their time and expertise.

Challenge Wales is a volunteer-run sailing charity which aims to develop the self-esteem and life-skills (e.g. teamwork and communication) of young people through sailing. The charity needs the People’s Millions fund to enable visually impaired and blind young people to come sailing on Challenge Wales. Research by RNIB Cymru shows that visually impaired young people want to take part in activities with like-minded people and develop confidence in a fun way. If Challenge Wales won the People’s Millions Lottery award this would enable Challenge Wales to run a host of pre-voyage sensory visits and a variety of day and residential voyages for visually impaired young people (those aged 12 – 25 years) and their buddies throughout Wales. The money would also pay for transport to and from ports in South, West and North Wales, equipment e.g. audio compass and tactile charts, and galley equipment so that those onboard can take part in all aspects of running a boat (that means cooking and cleaning as well as sailing). Support will come in the form of providing a unique learning environment through a stimulating sail training voyage. The learning environment will help those onboard develop personal skills and confidence.

Pets As Therapy is a national charity founded in 1983. It is unique in that it provides therapeutic visits to hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools and a variety of other venues by volunteers with their own friendly, temperament tested and vaccinated dogs and cats. Since it’s beginning over 22,000 PAT dogs have been registered into the Pets As Therapy scheme. Every year some of these retire and new dogs, having first been examined and passed on health, temperament, suitability and stability grounds, join Pets As Therapy.

Today there are currently around 4,500 active PAT visiting dogs and 108 PAT cats at work in the UK. Every week these calm friendly dogs and cats give more than 130,000 people, both young and old, the pleasure and chance to cuddle and talk to them. The bedsides that are visited each year number a staggering half million.

Sick patients often feel isolated and even the most withdrawn seem to open up and let the barriers down when their regular Pets As Therapy visiting dog is around. These dogs bring everyday life closer and with it all the happy associations for them of home comforts. The constant companionship of an undemanding animal, that gives unconditional love, is often one of the most missed aspects of their lives. Pets As Therapy was formed to help make this loss more bearable and speed recovery.

Research continues to validate the very real value of this daily work undertaken in the community by voluntary Pets As Therapy visitors and their dogs that work amongst those of us most in need of a little extra boost in addition to medical skills and nursing care.

Once new visitors have passed their dogs through the assessment and health check procedure and each has come forward with two character references, their local volunteer Area Co-ordinator or allocated contact waits to be contacted to activate the visiting process. This hard working team of volunteers throughout the UK keep in regular contact with a designated number of Pets As Therapy dogs and cats and their owners.

Area Co-ordinators maintain regular contact with every unit in their region, which Pets As Therapy dogs already visit. They also hold the list of establishments keen to be matched with a suitable new recruit when one becomes available.

The Conservation Volunteers have been in existence since 1959.

Right now, when one third of the UK's green places are in danger of being lost or degraded, our work is more important than ever.

The everyday green places that people use are especially vulnerable.  10,000 playing fields were sold off between 1979 and 1997.  And only 10% of the UK's allotments remain.  Places like these do not have special protection.  They are all under threat at a time when local councils are cutting budgets.

But neglecting green places is a false economy.  It doesn't take long for a once-loved open space to become a magnet for anti-social behaviour, and a cost to society.

So looking after green places isn't just about caring for nature.  It's about caring for people as well.

A well-used green place is a classroom, a gym, a playground and a sanctuary.  It is a place that is good for people as well as for wildlife.

The Conservation Volunteers help hundreds of thousands of people each year to reclaim local green places.  Through our own environmental projects and through our network of 2,000 community groups, we see people – every day, and all across the UK – taking responsibility for their own local environments.

You can be part of it too.

The Environment Centre is here to help environmental groups in the S. Wales area and to provide information regarding sustainability issues. We have a small green shop, fair trade coffee bar, meeting and exhibition spaces, information, office facilities, photocopying/laminating, internet access, demonstrations of renewable technologies and more.

The Environment Centre was set up by the Swansea Environmental Forum: an association of statutory and voluntary organisations active in environmental work in South West Wales. Through the set up of an environment centre, they sought to establish a base and focus for environmental information, education and activity in the area. In 1989, Swansea City Council offered the Old Telephone Exchange in Pier Street for conversion into an environment centre, if the Forum was able to attract the necessary support and funding. Support was offered by dozens of people from the voluntary, statutory and business sectors.

In February 1994, the project was adopted to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Investiture of the Prince of Wales. HRH visited the site in May 1994 and a number of national companies and charitable trusts contributed substantial sums towards the renovation costs. The Centre was officially opened in April 1995 by the Prince of Wales on a return visit to the project. In 1999 an Eco-Annexe was built to house the visitor centre.

Since 1995 the Environment Centre has grown and evolved to become a focus for education and activity in South West Wales. We work with a wide range of groups, organisations, public bodies, schools and the general public to help them put environmental sustainability first in our area.

The Centre is supported by a wide range of volunteers, who help on a regular basis or on specific events or projects.

Board of Trustees:

Are you interested in helping with the running of the Environment Centre?

Want to help us with our planning?

If so then why not join us as a trustee?

Our trustees are responsible for controlling the strategic direction of the Centre and ensuring the effective management and administration of our activities. Since the Centre is a company limited by guarantee our trustees are also our directors.

Visitor Centre Volunteers:

Do you have a spare afternoon or a morning a week? Do you enjoy meeting and helping people?

If so why not join us in our Visitor Centre?

Our regular volunteers look after our visitor centre. They meet and greet members of the public, serve in our shop, act as phone reception and much more

Other Roles:

We also have volunteers who help with maintenance, administration and events.
