Volunteer Learning Placement

Feeling Strong’s Learning Placement is designed for those with an interest in mental health and helping vulnerable young people reach their full potential. This post is designed to give you work experience to develop skills for your future career goals and knowledge of the foundations of Mental Health & Wellbeing. During the placement you will complete an SQA accredited qualification and work with Feeling Strong in one of two different capacities, on either an operations or services basis.

Our next intake of Learning Placements will be in August 2021.

Operations Learning Placement

The Operations Learning Placement will involve helping with the day-to-day running of Feeling Strong. This could include creating resources for our website or working with partner organisations and different stakeholders to help reach those who need it most. The operations learning placement is ideal for those who want to contribute to Feeling Strong’s behind the scenes work and can include administrative tasks or leading on fundraising events.

Services Learning Placement

The Project Learning Placement will involve working on a specific project within Feeling Strong’s workstreams. An example of this includes our Peer Coaching & Listening Service, and could also include projects delivered under any of Feeling Strong’s workstreams. These are Learning & Skills, Recovery & Support, Research & Content, Community & Outreach and Campaigns & Advocacy.

Please note: Our Volunteering Opportunities are for young people up to the age of 26, but anyone can still get involved to help Feeling Strong! If you're not able to volunteer but would still like to contribute then drop us an email at contact@feelingstrong.co.uk
