Volunteering at Share


Volunteering at Share

At Share we rely on volunteers to keep us running and in return we offer a relaxed, calm environment where you will meet a variety of people and can always get a biscuit! We appreciate that your time is precious and we will work with you to make sure that you have a fulfilling role, are supported to grow and learn if that’s important to you and that you feel like a valued member of the team.

There are many different ways you can volunteer at Share:

Trustee or specialist volunteer

Therapist role

Admin role

Specialist Volunteer

Are you interested in promoting good mental health in Sheffield?

Do you have specialist skills to offer?

Such as:


Service user involvement 

Web design and digital marketing

Management and business systems

Clinical management - especially in mental health

High-level psychotherapeutic skills and experience 

Share Psychotherapy is one of Sheffield’s leading mental health charities, providing high quality, long term therapy to people who could not otherwise obtain such help, especially those on low incomes. 

Our clients are often experiencing serious mental and emotional distress, through anxiety, depression, difficulty with relationships or traumatic life events.

We are part way through a change process at Share - developing and strengthening our clinical services, improving our administrative and business systems and strengthening our financial position. We want to build upon our position as a centre of excellence in psychotherapy and make an even bigger contribution to improving mental health in Sheffield.

Would you like to help us in this venture? We are looking for people with specialist skills who are willing to help in a voluntary capacity as a specialist volunteer contributing on a project basis. We are willing to consider a wide range of contributions.
