We think working in the care profession should be exciting, empowering and most importantly life-changing for you and the people you work with. If you share our belief and would like to work with us, we have a number of ways in which you can get involved.
Healthy Minds Academy Volunteering
The Camden Hub is launching the Healthy Minds Academy to help us build a network of volunteering opportunities aimed at increasing wellbeing through creating events and activities accessible to the whole community. This is a unique learning opportunity in which you can be part of real meaningful change for the community and health and social care sector more broadly.
We aim to redefine what we mean by “mainstream”, and move away from the separation of social activities for traditionally marginalized and vulnerable people. Driven by our core values of Co-production, Mutual Learning, and Empowerment, you will be an integral part of building this vision.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for people with a wide range of skills, knowledge and experiences who are enthusiastic about improving the wellbeing of the community as a whole. You will learn our way of working, gain valuable hands on experience, and have the opportunity to develop team-working, project management, and essential leadership skills in areas of personal interest.
How to get involved:
If you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include brief responses to the following:
- Your name and contact details
- Why are you interested in joining us?
If successful you will be invited to attend volunteer selection days, which run every 6 weeks. The primary purpose of the selection day is for us to get to know you. You will also be introduced to our values and way of working, and provided more information as to specific opportunities. We do not think that you need any particular experience or skills. Volunteers are selected based on their ability to work within our values, and their desire to learn and grow within our organisation.
