“I’ve really enjoyed being a volunteer Ambassador. I’ve done fundraising through bag-packing at M&S, sold jams and cakes at Saltaire Festival and run a Christmas raffle, but it’s meeting people and hearing their stories that’s been as rewarding as anything”

Make a huge difference

We wouldn’t be able to deliver our vital services without volunteers. Our volunteers help with fundraising and supporting our service users through peer support work. We’re always looking for enthusiastic people to volunteer with us, and it doesn’t have to be a big commitment.

  • Make a difference to the lives of people with mental health problems
  • Give something back to your local community
  • Full training and support every step of the way, including regular supervision
  • Develop skills and experience which may lead to new career opportunities

DBS checks

Because many Cellar Trust volunteer roles include working with vulnerable adults, most of our roles require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. This means that police records including warnings, reprimands and convictions are checked before people start as Cellar Trust volunteers. Having a warning, reprimand or conviction does not prevent you from volunteering at The Cellar Trust; we value and welcome volunteer applications from ex-offenders. If you have a criminal record, a risk assessment will take place to make sure volunteering at The Cellar Trust is suitable. Please see our DBS FAQ to find out more about DBS checks. DBS checks for volunteers are free, you will not be charged for a DBS check.
