DD8 music is thrilled to be looking for volunteers to involve in running our Discovery Project where young people will learn the fundamentals of DJing from the basics of rhythm and timing; to using filters, effects, scratching and looping. Effectively structuring a mix teaches young people to create and follow a plan, improve their timekeeping skills and problem solving; whilst thinking critically and creatively to enhance skills and technical repertoire. The programme will give the young people a core knowledge of the musical theory such as key changes, waveforms, and BPM and the ability to implement this into their mixes. Sessions are a combination of theory and practical lessons; the theory aspect of the sessions include presentations, games, and group work.
DD8 Music are looking for volunteers close to Arbroath for a couple of projects
# DJ Discovery project running on a Tuesday evening 5.30-7.30pm in central Arbroath. There will be plenty of opportunity to help run a fun DJ workshop with our trained staff, learn about how to transport and set up music equipment, get experience teaching basic skills and working with people from a variety of backgrounds.
# DJ Discovery will also be looking for volunteers for a Tuesday or Thursday working in Arbroath High. Times and days are to be confirmed however with more of a focus on working with young people!
If you're at all interested in volunteering with us either for the DJ discovery project, or any other projects get in touch via their social media, or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This volunteering role will involve a healthy mixture of helping to move music equipment and instruments to our group activity locations, setting up the rooms in preparation of the activities, and tidying up/taking equipment and instruments back, as well as helping during sessions.
Whilst the groups are in session, this role will allow you to supervise and give advice, encouragement, and support to the young people as well as the opportunity to build a rapport with them whilst our staff deliver their session plans. Sessions can either take a more structured, or free form style, so this role will be perfect for you not only if you crave structure, but also if you prefer a more easy-going environment with more space for spontaneous creativity.
This role would be a great opportunity either if you already have some musical ability and knowledge that you want to use, grow, or improve or if you want to help kick start your musical interests through helping others! This role is not only perfect for those with musical interests, as there’s lots of exciting ways of getting involved which can be tailored around you, and your interests and we have plenty of other roles besides!
· Helping transport, unpack and set up musical equipment
· Supervising and supporting young people in trying out instruments and practicing
· Helping tidy and take away equipment after sessions are over
· Helping staff deliver the session plan
· Engaging and supervising young people and adults during sessions

Get involved with Garden Club
In 2021 Hospitalfield’s Walled Garden, designed by the horticulturalist Nigel Dunnett, opened to the public. The scheme was developed to reveal the unique horticultural history of the site at Hospitalfield, which has been tended as a garden for over 800 years.
The garden and grounds at Hospitalfield are maintained, made fruitful and more beautiful with the fantastic support of our volunteers who meet regularly at Garden Club. Garden Club support the development of the garden from helping weed the gardens, sowing seeds, potting up plants and assisting with seasonal projects. Our next garden project is the development of the medicinal garden.
The site at Hospitalfield has been populated since the 13th century when the monks who ran Arbroath Abbey established their hotel or hospital, here where we believe that they must have grown a medicinal garden and brewed potions as medicines to improve the health and wellbeing of those who they cared for.
From January 2023 we are inviting a medicinal plant specialist to design the garden with Garden Club volunteers, Hospitalfield’s grounds keeping team and soon to be appointed Community Gardener. The new medicinal garden will be planted in a large area within the walled garden at Hospitalfield. As part of our upcoming Garden Club sessions we’ll be planning, preparing, and planting this new medicinal garden.
Garden Club Volunteers meet regularly from 10am to 12pm on Fridays at Hospitalfield. We’re looking for volunteers to come along and get involved in the new medicinal garden at Hospitalfield.
For full information on how to get involved and accessibility notes please see our website https://hospitalfield.org.uk/support/volunteer/garden-club/ or contact us at email@example.com

Hospitalfield is seeking new Governors at this pivotal time of development and change.
Our current Governors are a small, dedicated group of very experienced individuals who have worked with the staff team to get phase 2 of the Future Plan on site. The work has now started with a twelve-month building programme. As we move into a new chapter and plan for the use of the new and restored buildings, we wish to expand the numbers and range of skills on our Board. Join the Trust as a Governor and support our plan for the new studios and work with us to support the development of future capital phases.
• We are particularly interested in applications from local people who are embedded within our Angus community.
• We would very much welcome applications from artists based nationally.
• We always need support around finance, development and fundraising.
We aim to make our board more representative of the artists and audiences that we support while also ensuring that we have the right expertise.
We welcome applications from those who have not served on Boards before but feel they have a good deal to contribute to this next phase in the long life of the Trust.
Hospitalfield’s Governors provide an exceptionally important role in offering their time voluntarily in supporting the staff team at Hospitalfield. This is a large organisation with a very small team and the Governors play a significant role in bringing their skills, knowledge, contacts, and ideas to support the leadership that the staff team provide.

The aim of this project is to improve the experiences of families and carers, following the bereavement of a loved one in Hospital, with all in-patient areas using dignified and respectful bags/boxes to return patients valuables and belongings to families and carers.
Normal practice within the NHS is to return belongings following the death of a patient in plastic patient belongings bags; this includes very personal belongings such as watches, jewellery, cards, and photographs. The items are returned in a plastic bag which is universally used as a bag to store and return patients clothes. This has been seen for a long time as a practice which is impersonal and lacks respect and shows no recognition that the person has been bereaved. Recent feedback from staff and reflection from a student nurse on placement echoed the thoughts of how impersonal this felt and did not express the empathy the staff felt for families and carers.
