A voice and a choice for our mental health
- Volunteers play a really important part in Right Here: we are a truly youth-led project, meaning our volunteers make a lot of important decisions and decide how the project will run. We aim to develop teams of volunteers which are diverse and reflect the communities which we are trying to help. All our volunteers are aged 16-25.

- Try something new, meet new people and have some fun.
- A sense of achievement and satisfaction by helping others.
- Training in equality and diversity, mental health awareness, communication skills etc.
- Free travel and snacks at meetings!
