What skills and qualifications do I need?
Our volunteers bring diverse skills and life experiences to complement our work. Some bring personal experience of the challenges of living with substance misuse or coping with a loved one’s misuse.

Some roles, such as counsellors and mental health nurses, require specific qualifications. However, the majority of roles do not require any qualifications as we will provide all the training and support you may need.

A warm welcome for everyone
We are passionate about diversity and creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome and valued. We want our volunteers to reflect the diverse communities we support. So we strongly encourage applications from all members of the community, in particular those that are BAME, LGBT or that have a disability, as well as those with previous experience of the challenges our service users face, like substance misuse and homelessness.
