Get involved

Getting involved is when service users, their friends and relatives, carers and local people play an active part in the work of AWP.

There are many ways that you can get involved.

Become an 'Involvee'

We have a dedicated team who support service users and carers to become involved in all aspects of the Trust's work, in whichever way suits them.

You can get involved in:

  • Staff training and induction
  • Recruiting new staff
  • Reviewing services and providing feedback
  • Chairing and taking part in Trust groups or meetings
  • Coming to Trust conferences and events
  • Organising events
  • Mental health research 
  • Taking part in projects or task groups

Getting involved in primary care talking therapy services (IAPT services)

If you are interested in volunteering or becoming an involvee with  IAPT services in B&NES, North Somerset, Swindon, Wiltshire, Bristol or South Gloucestershire please contact each service directly via their local website.


Volunteers play a unique and valuable role in the services we provide. Their time, commitment, dedication, and skills are valued both by us and by the people they give their time to.

People volunteer for a variety of reasons, with the main reason being that volunteers simply enjoy helping others. Volunteering can help people build confidence and self-esteem, and meet new people.

We place a high value on our volunteers and are currently developing new ways in which we can support this work and offer more meaningful opportunities within the Trust.

Due to this work, we are not accepting volunteer applications at this moment in time. Please keep checking back to our pages for further information and new volunteer opportunities.

Unfortunately, we cannot process applications from people wishing to volunteer for study or work related assessment, observation or experience.
