Volunteers’ Week is an annual recognition of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering. At Support in Mind Scotland, volunteers have been an invaluable part of our organisation for many years. They bring not just their enthusiasm and time, but a wealth of very individual interests, skills and experiences that add a huge amount of creative value to what we do. 

During this time of remote support many areas of volunteering have had to be put on temporary hold. All of these volunteers have given their support and patience. We miss you, and we can’t wait to welcome you back!

Small areas of volunteering have been able to continue. Volunteers have thought of innovative ways to keep up spirits including crocheting hearts for Mental Health Awareness Week, and running virtual quizzes. We have also benefited from volunteer support with consultations, sharing lived experience through blogs, broadcasts from Radio Stafford and the ongoing commitment of our ambassadors and board members.

Whether or not your volunteering is able to continue during remote working we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the amazing volunteers who help enhance the work we do. Support in Mind Scotland wouldn’t be the same without you!
