Mindfulness Volunteer - S Glos

Location: S Glos - Patchway, Warmley and/or Yate

If you have experience delivering guided meditation or mindfulness sessions have you thought about using these skills to volunteer?

Overall purpose of role:

To provide guided meditation/mindfulness sessions to a group of marginalised clients to aid them in their recovery. Our clients are Adults 18+ in recovery for drugs and/or alcohol use and may also be homeless/at risk of becoming homeless.

Services such as this are often out of financial reach for our clients yet have been proven to help people in recovery manage their anxiety and reduce social isolation. We have three hubs in South Gloucestershire: Warmley, Yate and Patchway. We would love to be able to run the sessions in all three hubs but understand that this may not be feasible so will work with the volunteer(s) with regards to their preferred hub location.

Key responsibilities:

  • Deliver weekly sessions to clients.
  • Be aware that some clients may be more vulnerable due to trauma so adapt sessions accordingly.
  • Attend regular check in sessions with assigned line manager/staff member to ensure own wellbeing.

Who we are looking for:

If you have skills in delivering guided meditation or mindfulness sessions, have an interest in making a difference to people who are socially excluded and are warm, caring and compassionate have you thought about sharing these skills through volunteering?

If so, would you like to spend a couple of hours a week helping the most marginalised in our society manage their anxiety and gain confidence? We are looking for people who want to share their meditation and/or mindfulness expertise and all the benefits that this holistic therapy can bring with our clients. Meditation and mindfulness have been shown to be essential tools for sustaining long-term recovery so please apply now and you could play an important part in someone’s recovery journey.
