Want to make a difference to people with mental health illnesses in North East Lincolnshire? Volunteer with NAViGO!
Maybe you’re looking to gain knowledge in an area to eventually apply for paid work within mental health.
Maybe you’re a student looking for a new experience to add to your CV or a non-clinical mental health placement.
Or maybe you just want to give up your free time to help out the local community and have fun!
Working with Care Plus Group, we also support employability placements to offer placements to give people the skills they need to apply for vacancies in their chosen field.
Whatever your reasons for volunteering with us, we’ll be happy to welcome you into the NAViGO family! All we ask is that you share our values and have a desire to support, and learn from, others.
We work with you to identify where your skills and interests would fit best within the organisation.
We offer volunteer opportunities across NAViGO, in areas such as:
- Older people’s services
- Eating disorders
- Adult inpatient lodges
- Carers groups
- Nexus Youth Forum
…and many more! No matter what area you’re interested in, you’ll play a vital role within the organisation, working alongside our staff members to provide high quality services.
We’ll give you a full induction and provide you with training and personal development opportunities to make sure you have all the tools you need to support service users.
Absolutely! Volunteering helps people gain new skills and experiences and for some it can be a stepping-stone to paid employment.
If you’re feeling a bit lost and your career is in need of some direction, volunteering is the perfect option to see if working within mental health is right for you.
And if you’re not lacking focus, volunteering still looks great on your CV! We have beauty therapists giving treatments on our lodges and healthcare professionals pulling shapes in our dance groups!
