Volunteering at LSLCS

Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service has a commitment to volunteering. We see this as an essential part of our philosophy, in supporting people who have had mental health problems in their recovery. Many of our volunteers have had time out of work, and some have never worked, due to mental distress. We are proud of the fact that over half our paid staff started here as volunteers. Other volunteers have gone on to work elsewhere in the mental health field. We aim to provide people with a positive, supportive and nurturing experience of work. After six months of volunteering here, we are often able to provide a reference, to support volunteers in their applications for paid work, or for college courses.
