At Sport in Mind we are passionate about engaging young people with our charity! We often accept work experience and student placements who want to learn more about what we do, and what its like to work in an organisation like ours.


Beyond work experience weeks, we are also able to commit to other student placements. We recently had a wonderful student join us for a few months as part of their university programme, and this is what they had to say:

"During the summer of 2022 I worked as a marketing placement for Sport in Mind for two months. I am a second year student studying Typography and Graphic communication at the University of reading and have thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from my time at Sport in Mind. Working with the Sport in Mind team, both in marketing and content creation, and attending sessions and meeting people, has broadened my horizons in a way I had never thought possible. As well as learning new software and design skills from the team, I have developed more of an understanding of charity work and have really seen the importance of what Sport in Mind do. Attending the sessions and fundraisers has allowed me to see just how much the team of staff and volunteers do for the community, and how many people they help on a daily basis. 

Throughout my time with the team, I've heard constant, first hand feedback from the people they help, explaining just how much vital support and care that they offer to people from all walks of life suffering mental health difficulties. As someone who has faced similar difficulties in the past, simply working alongside the Sport in Mind team has made me feel supported and valued, not only as a team member but as a person as well. 

It has been wonderful to learn new skills, meet new people and experience all sorts of wonderful things in my time with Sport in Mind, as well as to see just how essential charity and mental health support is to so many people. Thank you Sport in Mind! "
