Supporting Us

We have a range of ways that you can support our work in the community whether you are having a clear out at home, have a few spare pounds that you can donate or you have your time or energy to donate to our cause.

Volunteers

Mind in Furness couldn’t do the work it does without a supportive team of volunteers offering their time. People volunteer for all kinds of reasons, to give something back to our community, to share your knowledge and skills and keep busy, to learn new skills, to get work experience, to boost confidence etc.. Volunteering can be regular or for one off events so how much time you give is up to you. We have various roles including Support opportunities, finance and admin, reception, retail, IT, arts and crafts etc.- please ask if you’re looking for a specific opportunity. Mind in Furness is a great place to come and volunteer, a place where you can expect to be accepted, trusted and empowered as part of a team to give your best.

We will reimburse travel costs and if you work over 4 hours provide a lunch allowance. Incapacity Benefit payments and Job Seeker’s Allowance should not be affected as long as you are still available for work. Whichever benefit you receive, you should inform your benefit’s agency you are doing voluntary work.

Our team of volunteers and staff pride themselves on creating a friendly and warm working environment. Contact us for an informal chat and for more information.

Fundraising

Why not raise funds for us and have some fun at the same time? Have you thought of taking part in a local event, or creating a personal challenge? It might be a 5k run, or the 40 mile K2B. We can help you promote your fundraising activity with our Virgin Money Giving page and collect money from your sponsors online.

We can advertise your event on our website and social media pages. We can offer you practical help to get your event off the ground.

We can also provide you with a range of materials to help you raise money for us such as promotional literature, Mind T-shirts, sponsorship forms and more. We can also make sure you get your event reported in our local press.

We couldn’t do half of what we do without the amazing generosity of supporters who fundraise for us, if you’d like to help, please give us a call.

Our Charity Shops

We currently have two Charity shops located in Millom and Barrow. Our shops sell goods mostly donated by the general public, and we rely heavily on your generosity to fund the work we do.

We are pleased to accept donations of:

  • Women's clothing, accessories & shoes
  • Men's clothing & shoes
  • Children's clothing & shoes
  • Books, DVDs, CDs

Without your donations, there would be no Mind shops and the money raised by our shops goes directly to support people experiencing mental health problems in the local community.
