Volunteering

Aware was founded by Dr McKeon and a dedicated team of volunteers, many of whom had their own personal experience of depression or bipolar, and who wanted to support others. That is still Aware’s ethos today, volunteers are the backbone of the organisation.

Volunteering can be a very rewarding opportunity to make a real difference in someone’s life. Aware provide full training and ongoing support. No prior qualifications are needed. If you have time and life experience, volunteering may be for you. Find out more below.
