Islington Mind - Outcome LGBTIQ+ project volunteers

About the role

Outcome is the LGBTIQ+ specialist service of Islington Mind, offering support to LGBTIQ+ people who experience mental distress within Islington and across London. 

We are open every Tuesday online and in-person at our day centre in Crouch Hill. We offer a safe and supportive therapeutic drop-in, as well as activities including art, yoga, walking group, running group, inclusive gender-specific groups, and creative writing.

We are also open on Wednesdays for a specific project supporting LGTBIQ+ people seeking asylum or who are already refugees. In this space, we offer a drop-in as well as more intensive mental health and practical support.

We are looking to offer volunteering placements on either Tuesday or Wednesday (or both) to candidates who identify as members of the LGBTIQ+ community. Candidates need to be able to commit to at least 12 months volunteering one day a week with us (in addition to around 1-2 months for DBS check and induction). Candidates should have an interest in supporting a mental health-focused project, working within a client-led setting to deliver activities, and helping clients who experience mental distress in group settings.

Outcome is a hybrid service (in-person and online) for the foreseeable future and volunteers will be expected to support the online service on Zoom and attend the day centre in-person.   Regular supervision as well as training opportunities will be provided.
