VOLUNTEERING

OPPORTUNITIES

ReMake Team

The ReMake team is made up of an amazing group of volunteers with disabilities and learning difficulties.

Together we will be designing, making, marketing and selling upcycled creative craft kits out of our amazing scrap.

We meet on Tuesdays 1-3pm and Thursdays 11am-1pm.

Mentoring & Support

We are looking for volunteers who would like to help support members of our ReMake team (as above). As a mentor you would join our ReMake team on a Tuesday or a Thursday to support our volunteers in a variety of activities as they design, make, market and sell their products.

 

You would need to commit to a regular 3 hours a week; either on a Tuesday 12noon-3pm or Thursday 10am-1pm.

Festivals & Events

Volunteering at festivals and events is a great way to gain experience and can be a lot of fun too!

 

We have a jam-packed festival schedule every year where we develop new projects, prepare and set up for events and deliver creative workshops. Volunteers play a big part in this, so if you think you would like to get involved then please get in touch.

 

Fridays 10-4 and occasional weekends.

Community Scrapstore

We are always looking for volunteers who would like to help us run the Scrapstore; diverting waste from landfill and providing affordable art & craft resources to the community. 

 

As a volunteer, you would help with the day to day running of the Scrapstore including sorting and restocking scrap and welcoming and serving customers. There will also be opportunities to help with workshops and other events if that is something you are interested in.
