Volunteer With Us

 

Do you want to volunteer your time as a mentor, to help someone achieve a goal? People may want a bit of guidance from you to start attending something new, build their confidence or to find out information perhaps.

Do you want to help Inclusion Gloucestershire do their other work – we are usually looking for people with skills who can support us. We pride ourselves in supporting volunteers well and will help you to achieve your goals or signpost you elsewhere if we can’t.

Thank you for your interest, our current volunteering opportunities will be listed below as and when they arise. 

If you do not see any roles listed, it may mean that we don’t have any opportunities to offer at the moment.  If you would still like to submit a prospective application to volunteer with us in the future, we are happy to keep this on file (with your permission) and contact you if a potentially suitable opportunity becomes available.    Please let us know if you would not like us to save your application for this purpose.

Neurodivergent mentors wanted

Are you neurodivergent?

Would you like to use your own experience to support other newly-identified neurodivergent adults in Gloucestershire?

The ZIG/ZAG Peer Mentoring Scheme offers free, 1-to-1 support to people who have recently discovered their own neurodivergence, matching them with experienced volunteer mentors who can offer empathetic support and solidarity as they explore and reflect upon this important aspect of their identity.

We will be recruiting three cohorts of volunteer mentors over the course of the project. We are now recruiting the first cohort of mentors, who will each be trained up and matched with a mentee by February 2024.

To be a ZIG/ZAG mentor, you just need to identify as neurodivergent – you don’t need a clinical diagnosis of any specific form/type of neurodivergence. All mentors will receive comprehensive training and ongoing support throughout each 6-month mentoring period, so you also don’t have to be an expert! If you are at a stage in your own journey where you feel ready to support others, we would love to hear from you.

To learn more about the project and complete an Expression of Interest form please follow this link: zigzagproject.uk/mentoring/  then one of our team will be in touch with more information.
