Denbighshire County Council are launching a new project this month, with the hope of improving the mental health and well-being of individuals living in the area.

The Edge of Care team are looking for volunteers to get involved in their new project.

Volunteering could include meeting individuals face-to-face, over the phone or by attending social groups together. The opportunities may be suited to students who require volunteering experience within mental health or for those who have some free time and want to support others in their community.

 

Cindy Elliott, Team Leader said: “There are many volunteering opportunities available which are suited to a range of abilities, but essentially we are hoping to improve the mental health and well-being of others through reducing isolation and improving socialisation”.

 

If you decide to volunteer, the team will try to match you with someone who shares similar interests. You can volunteer on days and times that are convenient to you and suit your existing commitments, with training provided to help you feel confident in your new volunteering role.

 

Councillor Elen Heaton, Lead Member for Health and Social Care said:

“This is a brilliant service if you are looking to gain valuable volunteering experience. Why not start this new year in a meaningful way by helping someone improve their well-being and mental health?.”
