Have you ever thought about volunteering? Here’s a story about on of our amazing volunteers.
Magdalena is an experienced music teacher and knows how energising group music making is. She offered to set up and run a music group teaching people with mental health difficulties to sing and play instruments. Our Wandsworth team put the idea to our service users, and the answer was a resounding, yes!
“Your Chance to Shine” was born. Starting with weekly meetings, the group now sings in public from an event celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week to singing at a venue on Tooting Bec Common. For Magdalena and the groups members, these have been rich and rewarding experiences.
Can you volunteer and make a difference?
Everything we say and do is rooted in the experiences of people who know what it’s like to live with a mental health problem. That includes the thousands of people who rely on our local services, our incredible supporters, fundraisers, volunteers, staff and trustees. Their experiences bring our work to life. We provide life-saving and life-changing services when people need it most. Read our annual review for an overview of key achievements this year:
