MindLine Trans+ volunteering

We’ll be holding Information Sessions in November and December 2021 for our next Mindline and Mindline Trans+ volunteer training, which will take place in January 2022. Read on to find out more.

MindLine Trans+ is a national service, delivered by Bristol Mind and Mind in Somerset.
We are keen to recruit Transgender, Agender, Gender Fluid & Non-Binary volunteers to support the line.
Volunteers receive comprehensive training for the helpline and information service and then work on a rota basis answering calls on Mondays and Wednesdays, 8pm to Midnight (volunteers based in Somerset, recruited through Mind in Somerset, cover the Friday evening service).
Volunteers also have the opportunity to work on our general MindLine helpline service which operates Wednesday to Sunday, 7-11pm.

What we offer you:

  • extensive and high quality training
  • be part of a friendly team
  • regular supervision and support
  • travel expenses
  • the opportunity to develop your skills and build your knowledge

What we expect from you:

  • agree to work with us for at least a year
  • attend all the training sessions
  • work a four-hour shift each fortnight
  • receive supervision after you have worked on the helpline
  • attend volunteer meetings
