Help make a difference

Volunteers play a vital role in delivering the Inside Out Community programme. Present at all of the sessions, our volunteers offer a friendly face helping members engage with the group and the activity.  

If you have experience of, or a strong interest in the arts, mental health and wellbeing, this could be the perfect opportunity for you. 

Volunteers will be DBS checked and are asked to commit for a minimum of three months, with weekly attendance at one of Inside Out’s arts and wellbeing programmes.

Training and support are offered to all volunteers. The role provides a great opportunity to meet new people in a friendly creative environment and can act as a stepping stone towards a career in health and social care professions.

Financial donations help fund the cost of venue hire, materials, professional artist fees and refreshments during our sessions. 

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic we have been running virtual sessions, and donations have also allowed us to deliver art kits to people’s homes and give access to people who would otherwise be unable to take part in online sessions.
