NHS Lincolnshire Night Light Cafés is calling for volunteers on National Time To Talk Day





Cafes focused on providing support to the community are appealing for volunteers on a national mental health awareness day.

Lincolnshire Night Light Cafés is an NHS service designed to offer out-of-hours, non-clinical advice and information as well as have teams of trained volunteers available on-hand to listen.

An invitation is today – on Time to Talk Day – being extended to potential volunteers, encouraging them to play a vital role in fostering community connections and transforming lives.

As well as having conversations, volunteers engage in crafts and board games to create a comfortable and inclusive atmosphere.

One previous volunteer said: “I genuinely believe that any volunteer will get just as much out of Night Light as the people who attend, not only do you get to be a part of helping people in their darkest hours, but you also receive training and experience that lasts a lifetime.”

There are locations in Lincoln, Spalding, Holbeach, Bourne, Gainsborough, Stamford, Maplethorpe, Market Rasen, Louth, Grantham, Spilsby, Skegness, Long Sutton, Horncastle and Boston.

Comprehensive training will be provided although previous experience of having or supporting someone with a mental health problem is beneficial, but it is not mandatory.
