We have opportunities for volunteers to get involved in running group activities for clients referred to our Community Bridge Building Project or to provide one to one befriending support. The roles are based in the Ballymoney area and would take place in the local community. Ideally volunteers should have an understanding of mental health and also be good communicators.
