There are many ways in which you can help us to support health workers in the developing world, increase numbers and change the quality of services on offer, and improve the lives of many affected by ill-health.


Volunteers are a core part of our team. We welcome people with an array of skills and knowledge, and who want to support us with our day-to-day running of our online office, organising campaigns, fundraising or raising public awareness. We are especially interested to hear from :

. Expert Volunteers: Individuals with a mental health care qualification, experience in teaching and training others, in project management or management of others. If you are a health care professional or have experience in working in health care settings, and you have an interest in sharing your skills with colleagues living and working in low and middle income countries, then we are keen to hear from you.

. Skilled Volunteers: Individuals with experience in a particular skill or trade, and in volunteering/or international development.

. Healthcare students: Mental health related final year students, fluent in English and with experience in volunteering.

Most of UIH’s current programmes rely on the support of volunteers, who are directly involved in the delivery and management of projects both home and abroad. Volunteering is above all a two-way process, and with Unity in Health is an opportunity to make new friends, experience new realities, and discover skills and talents you might have never realised you had.

Unity in Health is funded entirely by voluntary contributions. Fundraising is an important way of raising donations to help nurses and other health professionals around the world. As a non-profitable organisation dependant on external donations, fundraising assumes an essential role in the running and delivery of our mental health programmes.
