Narture Ayr

Narture CIC is an artist collective baking real bread and food/drinks from scratch to earn the dough to fund arts projects. We aim to use creativity to reanimate the historic quarter of Ayr, driven by experiential retail and cultural tourism. Our core objective is to provide community benefits by developing income sources, primarily through food and drinks and socially engaged arts. We seek to encourage every aspect of creativity as important: from everyday household skills to high-end aspirational arts, through to the essential day-to-day skills of managing and promoting accessibility to ALL members of society. We are seeking to develop a Sociocracy as our governance based on the values of equality. https://www.sociocracyforall.org/sociocracy.

As a community interest company we value volunteers and their support really means a lot to us. We are looking for General Volunteers to help us in the day to day running of our organisation and other volunteers to help us out in different projects. Any skill or interest you might have, might be suitable for one of our many projects - whether it is painting, decorating, shifting/sorting/organising through stuff, clearing up, creative skills, practical skills, all manner and form of skills appreciated. A passion for food and arts would certainly be an asset. In exchange for your time and energy volunteering with us, we can offer the opportunity to improve employability skills, fulfill your volunteering hours for Saltire Awards/Duke of Edinburgh or your company's corporate social responsibility. You can improve your customer service skills and we can even provide you with a character reference if you have volunteered with us for a number of months.
