Wisecraft – Creative Wellbeing Assistant

  • VO98363


As part of our Creative Wellbeing focus, we provide activities under the categories of Arts and Craft, Music, Performance/Drama and Creative Writing. Activities are provided in a supported environment to help improve confidence and self-esteem, working with each individual towards their recovery and improved overall wellbeing.

We are looking for volunteers to assist in the preparation of activities and to inspire and encourage client participation.

Skills and Experience
No experience is necessary as we can provide you with the necessary training.
If you have the following qualities and interests, then we would love to hear from you –
Enthusiastic – Passion and commitment to deliver a positive service.
Engaging – A good listener with a warm sense of humour who likes to motivate and encourage participation.
Knowledge of any of our four arts areas, not essential as training can be provided, it is however an excellent opportunity for you to showcase any specific skills and interests you may have.
