The time given by our volunteers is incredibly valuable and vital for our work

We have a range of volunteering opportunities available, including weekly support in our regular creative sessions, weekend and holiday workshops.

Volunteering is a great way to gain experience, meet new people, further your career and give something back to the community.

Being given trust and the responsibility of a group gave me a role to fill, something to grow into, and a much bigger sense of achievement I never really had before.

Interested in becoming a volunteer?

We look for volunteers who are over 16 and passionate about the arts, with good communication skills and a friendly attitude. You can get involved in a range of work such as supporting artists and participants in creative workshops, assisting at events and launches, and welcoming people to The Point.

More information can be found in our Volunteer Handbook – you can download it here. You can also read our volunteer role descriptions here, to get an idea of what is involved in volunteering in each of our groups.

You’ll then need to fill in an application form and email it over to Sophie at sophie@wearedarts.org.uk. We welcome applications from all people and want to make our application process as inclusive as possible. Please do let us know if you need any support in completing your application. If you would like to submit your application as a video, rather than a written form, please read the guidance at the end of the Volunteer Application Form.

We’ll then contact you and if we think we have something to offer you, we’ll invite you to The Point for an interview. If successful,  you’ll be booked into the next Welcome Session, where we’ll provide you with more information such as a health and safety induction, a building tour and of course tea and cake!

Please note that we are not able to support any work experience opportunities, placements or apprenticeships at the moment. We are also unable to offer any voluntary roles within the administration team. We are reviewing all of our opportunities at present and will let you know once more information is available.

If you have any questions at all about volunteering or filling in the application form, please get in touch with Sophie on 01302 493843 or sophie@wearedarts.org.uk.
