Islington Mind Enablement Service offers Islington residents who experience mental health problems the opportunity to work in a focused way on an 8 week programme designed by themselves to enable them to find ways of improving their quality of life and reduce their dependence on statutory services.
We are looking for volunteers who can support people with activities for at least 3 hours per week. Activities such as:
• escorting people to appointments/outings/activities or events
• organisational and administrative tasks - help with budgeting; understanding/applying for welfare benefits; letter writing and form filling; arranging activities/appointments; planning the use of other services such as shopping.
• supporting people to maintain their homes - reporting/organising repairs; organising a move; signposting and referring to services and activities.
Volunteers will receive 4 days of training and a fortnightly group supervision.
