Creative Group Facilitator

  • VO97608


We are a small charity dedicated to supporting our community to fulfil its potential. We run a weekly schedule of creative and therapeutic focused groups from our premises within Dudhope Castle and are in need of help with:

planning and ideas-generation (our materials are mainly donated or upcycled ‘junk’);
setup & clearing;
supporting group participants to try out ideas and manage the manual challenges of the activities; and
facilitate the flow of the group.

We’re looking for someone with some experience and interest in the activity type, but most of all you will bring patience and positivity. We hope that you will enjoy the social aspects of this role, as well as knowing that you are making a valuable contribution to your community.

You will volunteer alongside at least one of our staff team. Groups run Tuesdays to Fridays, 10am-12pm or 1-3pm, with time around that for set up and planning.

Organisation aims and objectives

We are a registered Community Interest Company (a type of non-profit social enterprise), working with individuals (16+) with learning disabilities, autism and mental health barriers. We focus on an individual’s strengths and aspirations, then work with them to realise their potential, leading to self-worth and independence. We do this through: creative workshops, group and community work, mentoring, skill development programs, meaningful volunteering roles, jobs and social events.
