THE STORY BEHIND THE PICTURE
Volunteer mentor Brett has received full training and on-going support from our Mentor Coordinator, Sian Jones.
We are always delighted to hear from people wanting to volunteer.
We need your help in mentoring, providing learning support for young people, crewing and training people on the Swingbridge Community Boats, supporting our staff at events and office work.
Our counsellors are volunteers, too. Just a few hours can make all the difference and, of course, we pay your travel and other essential expenses.

We’re looking for enthusiastic crew members for our community boats, Swingbridge1 and Swingbridge2. Experience is not required as training is provided but we do need people with a good sense of humour, patience and empathy to encourage our supported volunteers who may have mental health problems, mild learning difficulties or are dealing with addiction or the aftermath of family breakdown or unemployment. Find out more about how our community boats are benefiting local people by reading our Trust Matters newsletter.
