SLaM BME Volunteering Programme

SLaM BME Volunteering Programme

Msaada (Swahili name meaning giving back), is a volunteering programme for people from the Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) communities who want to support BME people who are living with a mental illness.

Looking for a chance to give back, make a difference and gain experience? 

Msaada is looking for local BME volunteers to befriend BME service users in wards for a couple of hours on a weekly basis. 

The programme is an opportunity to improve self confidence, meet new people and change lives. Many volunteers have gone on to pursue a career in Health & Social Care, nursing, medicine or social work.

What they are looking for?

No previous experience is necessary, but you must be willing to commit to volunteering for a minimum of two hours per week for nine months. Volunteers have to provide two references and pass DBS clearance and Occupational Health checks.
