What will I be doing?

  • We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to want to gain experience in or share their passion for working with children and young people in an inclusive environment. 
  • We are particularly keen to find people with experience in a passion for or skills in theatre, movement and dance, music, devised drama and directing, set or costume design or technical and stage management experience.
  • We are also looking for people who have experience in or are keen to work with and support children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities in a creative environment.

What impact will this have?

  • We work with children and young people aged from 7 - 25 and our work is spread across four core groups as well as holiday workshops and projects and partnership activities.
  • We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to want to gain experience in or share their passion for working with children and young people in an inclusive environment.
  • Because our work is inclusive, some of our members and participants have special needs, disabilities or other access needs that mean they need additional support
  • All of our groups create original and exciting new theatre and volunteers are essential in supporting the creation of this work and in ensuring that every participant is fully part of the creative process
