Creative Groupwork

WE'RE NOT RECRUITING GROUP VOLUNTEERS DURING SOCIAL DISTANCING RESTRICTIONS. 
JOIN OUR E-MAIL LIST OR CHECK THIS PAGE LATER FOR UPDATES.

If you like being with people, can hold your own with a paint brush and don't mind mess, get involved in our groups! We support young people by bringing them together with other young people with similar support needs. We've got groups for young people learning difficulties, groups working on anxiety or other issues and groups for young people helping them build resilience and self-esteem.  All use creativity and interaction to help young people support each other and get the support they need.

You can meet new people and other volunteers, learn new skills and have fun whilst supporting young people.
