Are you looking for an office-based volunteer post?
If you would like to provide admin’ support for our work and might be interested in assisting with admin’ jobs such as data entry, filing, and general office duties, then please contact ask@hycscounselling.co.uk to see if we are currently looking for any help.

If you enjoy using apps and would like to be one of our HYCS team of app testers in your spare time to use and then review mental health and wellbeing support apps, please contact us at ask@hycscounselling.co.uk.

Our team of testers pre-assess apps for safety, enjoyment and of course whether they are supportive, using a simple, standard form.  Their work has been really helpful in identifying apps to suggest to our client base.   

If you are aged 11-25, are enthusiastic and would like to represent the voice of young people within our organisation and  help to shape our service, please contact us at ask@hycscounselling.co.uk

The Role of a Trustee
Becoming a charity Trustee is one of the most important roles in the voluntary sector. Our Trustees help to give direction to the charity and are ultimately responsible for its activities. The Trustees' skills and experience are invaluable to the further development and growth of HYCS.
