Our Aims and Objectives:

  • To provide an environment where volunteers, managers and customers can improve their well-being
  • To generate income for Mind in Camden


Our shop aims to provide a fun atmosphere where customers and volunteers can enjoy their time in the shop.

After the required training, volunteers are given responsibility under the guidance of the manager.

Volunteers come from sections of the community, but for those recovering from mental health problems, this can be a great opportunity to gain confidence, develop self-esteem and initiative, improve social skills and enhance employment prospects.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer within our Mind in Camden shop, please contact the Shop Manager on 020 7284 2236
