Volunteer Music Group Assistants

ADA-Alcohol & Drugs Action have opportunities for Volunteer Complementary Therapists to support people who require this service in their recovery journey.

The DA Music Group is looking for a volunteer with musical background who would be able to tutor either individuals or a group in some aspect of music. The group does not stick to one specific style of music so the wider the volunteer’s knowledge and experience the better. The idea of the music group is to allow an outlet for clients musical creativity and to help them to reconnect with society and gain confidence and self-esteem. Essential qualities are patience, creativity, and the ability to bring people together.
