Appropriate Adult

Could you volunteer as an Appropriate Adult?
Mind provides an Appropriate Adult Service to support vulnerable adults in police custody. We have a 24/7 rota system where volunteers can offer their time on the following shifts:

Morning (07:00-12:00)
Afternoon (12:00-18:00)
Evening (18:00-00:00)
Overnight (22:00-04:00)

The role can be quite challenging and will not suit everyone, but it can be very rewarding. The current team of volunteers do a fabulous job and Mind gets excellent feedback from the police!!

The most difficult shifts to cover are the Evenings (18:00-00:00) and Overnights (22:00-04:00), particularly on the weekends and during holiday periods, so we are always looking for new volunteers who can cover those shifts.

You will be trained and supported to carry out the role, so if anyone would like to be a volunteer for the service, please get in touch with Andrea Atkinson!
