An exciting opportunity supporting the growth of YourSpaceTime to create new opportunities within mental health for disadvantaged communities via a mobile counselling service.
We are asking for the support of your expertise to help build our brand and service. We are looking to find ways to continue our community work, which was established with the launch of a pilot in February 2020. The service was well received and supported by the local community.
We were ready to expand the pilot, working alongside a reputable business, but due to Covid 19, it has been delayed.
We are living in uncertain times, where the economic and social impact of Covid 19 is still unknown. We want to be best prepared for our return to a new normal and with the future looking like a long road ahead, counselling will play an integral part in helping many with what has and is, about to happen.
The original pilot was funded by a grant from The Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Director is a recipient of the Ideas & Pioneers award.
We are looking for someone who has a genuine in interest in mental health; who wants to help support the growth of our fledgling organisation. We hope to inspire people to create new ideas to help vulnerable and disadvantaged young people, adults and isolated older people.
We are currently a team of 3 and our initiative at this stage will be driven by volunteers.

How we would work together
You will work with the YST Director, who is currently the only full-time member of staff. We will work together virtually as a fully remote team of volunteers, via Zoom and/or other online platforms.
We ask volunteers to commit at least 3-5 hours per week - whilst your contribution is on a voluntary basis, we do want to feel like we can rely on you.
You'll be supporting an initiative that will lead to the creation of a new, innovative project that is going to help vulnerable adults and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds get through the aftermath of Covid 19.
This is a very exciting opportunity for a passionate and conscientious individual to join a start-up company at a very pivotal time. Volunteering for our organisation will give you an opportunity to contribute to the longer term effects of COVID-19, from the safety and comfort of your home. The global pandemic is affecting us all and we care deeply about making a difference to people's wellbeing through this initiative. We are open to discussing longer term prospects with the volunteer.
