Volunteering generally is extremely helpful to organisations like TBYMUK and your expertise will help shape the service we provide with the app as its main provision.

This app will be for all people in the UK, no matter who they are, where they're from or what their language is, we aim to have an in-app translator which translates messages to and from English to provide the same service, ensuring it is accessible to those English is not their first language. We believe this will change the way mental health support is provided in the UK and you can be part of it!

We also want to look into making it accessible for the deaf and blind, who also deserve the exact same as those who are not faced with challenges such as these.

Fundraising is vital to ensure this app is launched and made available to the public, so your expertise could help here too!
