Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust seeking Art & Craft Wellbeing Session Volunteer

Bristol based Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust is seeking a Volunteer for their Art & Craft for Wellbeing Group, a popular group that meets every Thursday morning.

Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust is a charity based in Lockleaze at a community centre called The Hub. The Hub is located on Gainsborough Square in the heart of Lockleaze, Bristol.

Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust is seeking a Volunteer for their Art & Craft for Wellbeing Group sessions. A popular group that meets every Thursday morning from 10:30 – 12:30. The group is made up of a range of abilities and ages. Some long standing members of the group bring their own crafts to do and need no direction, others come to the group looking for projects to start and are keen to be led on different art projects and ideas. Some need a little attention and others need more, some need none and just like to have a cuppa and a chat with their peers.

The volunteer would ideally have experience in, or be keen to gain experience in working with adults with additional needs as this makes up around half of the group. The volunteer would need to be confident with working with these adults and helping them find arts and crafts that interest them throughout the session. The volunteer would also need to be able to provide a welcoming friendly environment to the new members that join us. The volunteer would be supporting a current volunteer, and would be leading the group when the other volunteer has time off. On top of this helping to set up the room with the projects for their arrival and helping staff to clear away after would be excellent but is not essential.

The Trust is seeking someone with confidence or experience with working with adults with additional needs. A friendly and patient person that could help people find direction when they need it, come up with ideas and also hype them up when they are doing work they are enjoying.
