Our art group volunteers provide practical support for the group, assisting members as required.
Volunteers assist the organiser by setting up the venue including laying out of art materials, serving refreshments and tidying away a the end of the session. Support to members can take the form of welcoming, engaging in conversations and if needed assisting with one to one activities.
This role requires good communication skills, a caring empathetic nature and flexible practical approach. An interest in art, although welcome is not essential as there is a resident art therapist to lead the group.
We provide training in dementia awareness and you will have the on-going support of the group organiser.
