Online Support for Self-Harm

Alumina is an online course that supports young people who self-harm. It’s run over the internet so teenagers from all across the UK take part and join a live group once a week, normally Monday evenings. Led by our experienced team, each group has a volunteer co-leader. We would provide you with training and give you the support you need to be part of the ground-breaking programme.

Schools Volunteer

Local secondary schools have been the focus of our work with young people for over twenty years. We offer lots of programmes and services to schools including small group work, mentoring and larger presentations to classes and year groups. As a volunteer, you’ll be able to work alongside one of our experienced staff and help make these programmes happen whether you prefer working with a small group of students or standing at the front of an assembly hall!

Youth Work Volunteer

Our ‘drop in’ work at Bute Mills provides a home-from-home for local teenagers. It operates every day after school, five days a week, as a safe and consistent base for 11 to 18 year olds. It enables us to direct young people into specific programmes and other opportunities depending on their needs and interests. Volunteering would include relational youth work and building community, helping to set up and pack down equipment and run activities and workshops.

Home-Start Volunteer

Do you have a couple of hours to spare each week to support a local struggling family with young children? Are you a caring reliable person?

Home-Start, the leading UK family support charity are looking for parents and grandparents to join their volunteer team to support the increasing number of families who are coming to them for help.
