• The most beautiful people, are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.
    There persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of lifeThat fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern.
    Beautiful people do not just happen.

    - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Becoming a volunteer

There are exciting opportunities for people to join our team and volunteer with Thurrock Recovery College.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer you can do this by contacting Thurrock and Brentwood Mind and enrolling as a volunteer. We offer training through Thurrock and Brentwood Mind and the Recovery College to develop existing and new skills and help people make the most of their potential.

We are excited to work alongside Thurrock and Brentwood Mind which received accreditation from Investors in Volunteers in October 2016.

We also have links with other community groups and organisations, so this could be a stepping stone into another exciting opportunity elsewhere. Volunteering can be a way for you to meet like-minded people, give something back to your local community and gain confidence and new skills. Many people go into paid roles from volunteering, through the knowledge they have imparted whilst giving their time and commitment for free.

Want to find out more? Give us a call or drop us an email to go through these options in more detail.
