Youth Volunteers (aged 13-25)

We are looking for passionate young people who want to make a difference for youth both locally and internationally.

You could get involved in workshops, public speaking, writing, social media, creativity (e.g. art, film making, theatre), fundraising, raising awareness and using your voice to champion youth mental health.

Whether it’s for your DofE or another award scheme, work experience or if you just want to get involved in something within your community and get some work experience for your CV, fill out our volunteer enquiry form or for queries contact us at hello@thewishcentre.org.uk.

NCS Community Partners

The wïsh centre are a proud community partner for NCS and have been involved in some fantastic campaigns with young people over the years. If you would like us to be a partner for an upcoming programme contact us at hello@thewishcentre.org.uk.

Over 25s – Offer your time and skillset

Everyone who volunteers does so for very different reasons. Some do it to enhance their skills and CV, others to have a positive impact on a cause they feel strongly about, and others to meet new people and have fun.

The amount of time we ask volunteers to commit to varies depending on the opportunity. Some opportunities only ask volunteers to commit to a few hours on one particular day and others ask for a longer term commitment. We will always make it clear what time commitment we are asking of you and in most circumstances we can be flexible.

Unfortunately we are only able to offer very limited opportunities to volunteer directly with young people who self harm. Opportunities do come up occasionally and you are welcome to register your interest using our online form.

Become a Trustee

If you are interested in becoming a Trustee of the wïsh centre and are a young person with lived experience of self harm or are a community fundraiser or educational or mental health professional we would love to hear from you.

Our Volunteers

Our volunteers are some of the most dedicated people we know, and are determined to make life better for young people who self harm. Some of them support us because they recognise how vital our work is, and some of them have themselves or have friends or family members who have been supported directly by us. People just like you. We need you to help us to reach every young person who needs us. Will you join us?
