Mikeysline is on the hunt for new volunteer support workers for their new Tain Hive, which will offer mental health support for young people who are struggling.

Highland mental health charity Mikeysline is due to open their new Hive in the Tain area, and are looking to recruit volunteer support workers who can spare a few hours each month to offer in-person peer support, or via their multimedia digital text services.

The new Tain hive, on 8 Tower Street, will be providing in-person support to adults and young people aged 11-25 in the Tain area on Tuesdays from 4.30–8.30pm, starting from November 28.
