Integrated Community Support (ICS) volunteers
The Integrated Community Support (ICS) provides day service opportunities for people with low and medium Preventative Care Needs.
We are currently looking to offer volunteering placements with our new Mental Health Recovery Pathway (MHRP) – a mental health provision based across three sites in Islington responding to the mental health needs of Islington residents.
You will be assisting service users who experience mental distress in group settings.
During Covid19 lockdown restrictions the volunteering will be carried out remotely, using 1-to-1 telephone support as well as supporting clients to participate in online activities using Zoom.
We ask for a commitment of at least 1 day a week 9:30 – 5:00 for a full year (+ about 2-3 months for DBS check and induction), though there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer more than one day a week.
If this sounds interesting and suitable to you, please complete the volunteer application form and return with your CV and a letter of interest, indicating why are you interested in volunteering for Islington Mind, if there is anything specific that you would like to do in your volunteering placement – e.g. facilitate activities, work one-to-one with service users, support our open access drop-in sessions, support service users with completing forms, accompany service users to appointments etc, and your availability – e.g. one or more days a week and which days of the week you are available.
Please email all the above application material to:
