Don’t just take it from us that our volunteers find their experience volunteering with us a positive, beneficial and rewarding one... we can show you!

Here are some amazing testimonies below for you, from past and present volunteers about their time volunteering with Dorset Mind.

“Being involved with Dorset Mind has been a life-changing experience already, we have met so many lovely people … and had the opportunity to talk with like-minded people about mental health issues.”
Adult Services Volunteer, October 2020

I wanted to educate and support young people about mental health. Being a Young Ambassador allows me to do this in an amazing team.”
Young Ambassador, June 2020

“Befriending has been an uplifting experience, which has challenged me to overcome some of my own feelings of low confidence. Seeing the client’s willingness to manage their own Mental Health needs and trying new things was rewarding.
Befriending Volunteer, December 2020

“Why I feel proud to be a volunteer with Dorset Mind is being able to help people by being there for them. Witnessing and helping them speak out their day-to-day struggles. What I really like is getting to meet people I would never otherwise would get to know and learning about their experiences.
Befriending Volunteer, October 2020

“I hope I can offer support to Dorset Mind for many years to come, not only because I feel strongly that it is a fantastic cause but also because it has given me personally a purpose – making me feel better about myself.” 
Fundraising and Events Volunteer, 2020

“I love volunteering at the GAP Project. I’m meeting new people, enjoying my time out in the fresh air, and learning a lot about how to grow plants! The reason I wanted to volunteer at the GAP Project is because I recognise that it is a great, safe and friendly place to go for people who are struggling with their mental health.”
The GAP Project Volunteer, 2020
