Volunteer’s Week

Dear Volunteers

As lockdown continues and summer is beginning I am mindful of all the things that we would normally have done in the last couple of months where we would have seen a lot of our volunteers helping out at various events etc.

I hope all of you are coping well with the lockdown and enjoying the beautiful weather that we have been lucky enough to have to brighten our days.

Although we may not have seen you, we are certainly mindful of your contributions to the organization over the year and that is something for us all to celebrate in Volunteers Week. So on behalf of all at Brecon Mind I would just like to say  big thank you to all of you who help to keep our services running and I very much hope that we will be able to see you all in person in the coming months once all this has calmed down and we gradually start returning to normal.

With warm wishes

Val and the team at Brecon Mind.

Volunteering is a great way to build new skills while meeting people and experiencing new opportunities that otherwise I would not have to chance to do. I have volunteered throughout my adult life at different points, mainly when staring a new line of work or activity.

Volunteering can help build your confidence while you gain experience in a safe and supported environment.  I have been a volunteer with Brecon Mind for just over a year and I really enjoy seeing everyone when I’m in. Its a very friendly place where I have the opportunity to work along side a great team.

I have met some wonderful people while volunteering at Brecon Mind, the experience has allowed me to explore my attitudes, stereotypes and knowledge around mental health which is really beneficial for both my professional and personal development. Thank you Brecon Mind.
