Telford After Care Team CIO and Branches TACT are a dedicated support charity helping the people of Telford and Wrekin who are struggling with mental health and/or addiction issues. We run a drop in facility for anyone who needs help between the hours of 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday.
We have a timetable of free events and peer support activities, free on site listening support, a supported housing facility, outreach and a crisis night service (professional referral-into).
Our volunteers receive free accredited training, full expenses, and a dbs check.
Our staff all have lived experience of mental health/addiction/the justice system/social services etc. It’s our company pledge that we help people to realise their potential and help others in a safe, encouraging environment. Strickland House is a friendly, lively and non-judgmental place.
We offer volunteering opportunities in Support Work, Reception Desk, Café, Gardening, Facilitating groups, Administration, Creative Writing, Singing and much more.
Applicants certainly do not need a clean DBS check to apply, we do understand that someone wishing to work here may have been in difficulty beforehand, so as long as they are upfront about any previous convictions and want to change their lives, help others etc we will try to accomodate them.
Applicants will need to be committed to attending the Volunteer Training Courses.
A regular commitment of as many hours as you are able to give would be appreciated, all expenses reimbursed.
