Aware Defeat Depression is currently seeking Fundraising Volunteers to help raise funds to support our work. All you need to do is choose something to do from our calendar of fundraising events or you can organise your own event.


  • As a fundraising volunteer you are vitally important to Aware Defeat Depression—without your support we could not deliver our services across NI
  • The money raised by you will allow us to continue to help people with depression recover from the illness.
  • It also helps us to  remove the stigma associated with depression by encouraging people to talk about their mental health
  • Our services include over 20 support groups that meet regularly across Northern Ireland and a telephone helpline service
  • We also provide a range of education programmes which provide people with the tools to build their personal resilience against poor mental health



There are no qualifications needed to be a fundraising volunteer for Aware. Simply choose something to do from our calendar of fundraising events or you can organise your own event like a coffee morning, quiz night or fashion show.
