We are in the process of opening a shop on Whitby Road, Ellesmere Port and would welcome volunteers who are interested in Arts and Crafts.
Volunteers are needed who have arts and crafts skills that they can use to help people with mild learning difficulties, engage with the activities to stimulate their interest and enjoyment.
You need to be friendly, outgoing and enthusiastic. It doesn't matter if you can give help for an hour, half a day or a whole day, once a month or once a week.
This opportunity will give you experience of therapy and using art as a media to engage with people in different ways. A taster session can be arranged to try out ideas and meet the people.
Art and Craft type skills. These can be a varied range of skills or just one specialist skill. A willingness to share those skills or try something new and introduce it to new people.
Excellent communication skills, good interpersonal skills. Lots of patience and experience of breaking down training activities into simple tasks to help the people engage. Lots of enthusiasm and willingness to share your knowledge with others. Will require a DBS Check for this role.
Location: Whitby Road Ellesmere Port
Shop will be open Monday-Saturday from 9am-5pm
