Volunteer opportunities

Creative Arts volunteers

Volunteer Mark Watson

We are looking for someone with a love of art and/or crafts who has an interest in encouraging other people to be creative. You will be supported in leading a regular art crafts session taking people through the steps of a particular creative task. Alternatively, you could run it as an art and social group where everyone works on their own individual project but gets the chance to chat and encourage each other, and perhaps swap skills too! This opportunity can either be virtual (meeting using Microsoft Teams) or out in the community, or a mix of both.

Walk leaders wanted

Do you enjoy walking? Would you like to help others to gain or maintain their fitness? Walking is one of the safest activities and yet can bring so many health and social benefits. We offer bespoke walk leader training to help people lead walks across the Bradford, Airedale and Wharfedale district. Once training is completed, you will be given ongoing support from our team and from our network of existing walk leaders. We also have opportunities for people to ‘back mark’ existing walks as support.

Ukulele tutor

We are looking for a Ukulele tutor to deliver a course for beginners – be this virtual or in the community. The focus would be on learning a musical instrument with the aim of improving mental wellbeing and for therapeutic and social benefits. Our team will support and help you all the way with setting up your group, and we will also be give training on our digital online resources.

Fitness instructors wanted

We are looking for a qualified instructor who is able to deliver gentle exercise classes. If you have experience of working in a gym setting and can give some of your time to help people in your community who are isolated and who may also have long term conditions, then please get in touch.

Relaxations leader

We are looking for a volunteer to lead guided relaxation sessions, either virtually or in the community. Guided relaxations can help people to manage stress and anxiety in their life, with benefits to their mental and physical health. We will provide the relevant training, showing you how to lead guided relaxations to small groups, and support you to lead your own sessions providing music and equipment.
