MIN has a variety of opportunities to volunteer with our groups or within the organisation. From small tasks such as helping out at events to bigger commitments like joining the Management Committee or facilitating group activities, MIN could not do all the work we do without the help of our wonderful volunteers!

How can I get involved?

Opportunities with us include helping out with group support, community events, gardening & environmental maintenance, media & communications, interpreting, ESOL classes, office support, fundraising and general housekeeping. If you have skills or would like to gain more experience in any of these areas then we’d love to hear from you.

The availability of some of these opportunities, such as group/office support and ESOL, varies as roles are filled but please get in touch with us anyway as we would be happy to meet with you and discuss any alternative options or place you on a waiting list. Roles such as gardening and assisting at community events are usually always available though and we are particularly keen to hear from anyone with fundraising experience.

How much time would I have to commit?

We value your time and ours so want to make most of any time commitment you make when volunteering with us, whether it’s a few hours a week or a few hours once in a while.

On average our weekly volunteers give us 2 hours of their time each week, helping out with group support, garden & environmental management, ESOL/language classes, general housekeeping and assisting with admin in the office but if you have a lot of other commitments and are only able to help out occasionally then assisting at community events or facilitating a one off arts & craft or learning activity with our groups could be ideal for you. Similarly helping out with fundraising or media & communication are roles that could take up as much or as little of your time as suits you and can even be done from home.
