Current Volunteer Roles:

Creative Carers Group Organiser Volunteer

Do you love doing arts and crafts?

We’re looking for two creative people with a passion for art and craft projects to co-deliver a monthly Creative Carers Group online and face to face for unpaid carers in Leeds.

You will help to create a welcoming and inclusive environment so that carers from different communities can have a break, take part in creative activities and meet other carers. Sessions could cover a range of activities, such as: card making, needle felting, crochet and jewellery making.

This volunteer role will involve engaging with carers, supporting them to participate in the activities, jointly taking the lead and planning of the group. For face to face groups you will set up materials and clean up afterwards.

You will have the opportunity to develop our Creative Carers group, bringing your own interests and skills.

The time commitment is 5 hours per month and travel expenses will be reimbursed. The group is held on the third Friday of every month.
