Feeling Strong

Feeling Strong is a service delivery and campaigning organisation with the mission to improve the lives of young people living with mental health issues in Dundee by fostering the skills, confidence and aspirations they need to flourish. We work closely with the community to provide opportunities for our service users in the following areas; lobbying, skills development and awareness.

Current opportunities

Our General Volunteers support Feeling Strong in its activities, including fundraising, awareness raising and working with young people at events and on our programmes! The role is varied and diverse, takes place at a range of times and we're flexible to work with so there is always an opportunity that can fit in with your lifestyle. We believe that a support first environment (as opposed to traditional line management) allows our volunteers to really shine and empowers them in their role. We ask that our volunteers display a level of commitment so that we can work together in a way that supports the best interests of the Young People we all want to help. We believe in creating development opportunities for our volunteers and enabling them to develop their own projects and opportunities with Feeling Strong. Volunteers should be aged 14 - 26 years old..
