Commitment

  • Evolve is a leading homelessness charity in London, providing housing and support to over 2,000 people each year.
    We believe in building on people’s strengths, aspirations and goals to help break the cycle of homelessness and help them move forward with their lives.
    Many of our customers want support to express themselves through music recording and production but don't always have the skills and experience to do so.
  • We're looking for volunteers who have skills in music production, particularly logic pro x.
    Volunteers would be expected to have a regular, but flexible time that they could come into the service and work with individuals or small groups to support their music production, ideally for 1-3 hours a week or fortnight, although the exact timing is flexible.

What else do I need to know?

  • This opportunity will contribute to your experience and understanding of issues surrounding homelessness, young care leavers and unaccompanied minors and help you gain a greater understanding of the service delivery side of charity, as well as making a significant contribution to a young person’s life.

Expenses

  • Travel expenses within zones 1-6 (or as otherwise agreed) and lunch expenses if volunteering over 4 hours per day.

Background checks

  • A DBS check is required
