Teapot Trust Volunteers

  • VO70053


Description

Teapot Trust is a Scottish charity providing a UK wide programme of art therapy and creative interventions for chronically ill children in hospitals and hospices. We have a team of professional art therapists working across Scotland and London, including Royal Aberdeen’s Children's Hospital.
We are currently looking for volunteers to raise awareness and help to increase our presence in Aberdeen. Teapot Trust want to recruit representatives to volunteer at local events such as tea parties, sponsored runs/walks and give talks about the work we do. Volunteers could also help run an arts and crafts table, manage collecting cans and sell merchandise. We always welcome new fundraising ideas and will provide support and training depending on the event.
Depending on skill set we are looking for a volunteer to manage other volunteers on a local basis.
Excellent support is provided to all volunteers. A member of staff from Teapot Trust will explain to new volunteers what is required for each role and give training for relevant areas. There will be a named member of staff volunteers can also contact if they require support or wish to discuss their volunteering role.
Fantastic opportunities to assist and help the Teapot Trust make a real difference for children and young people in Aberdeen. All volunteer help is greatly appreciated. For further details please contact Kirsty Moore at E Mail: info@teapot-trust.org or Tel: 0131 273 4340.

Organisation aims and objectives

The Teapot Trust children’s charity uses art therapy as a way of helping young people cope with long term medical conditions. We know that these conditions can cause anxiety, anger or upset for children and families. Art therapy provides a way of expressing and dealing with feelings, helping children to feel more in control and to cope with their condition.
