Our Place (Barnsley) provides support to adults with learning disabilities.
We operate drop in sessions three days per week, including Saturday’s, where people can come and meet their friends.
We have various activities available such as arts and crafts, quizzes, bingo, karaoke and much more!

Do you enjoy doing arts and craft based activities? Do you like, glitter, glue, cutting, sticking, painting, colouring and creating? Would you like to make a difference AND get to create while you are doing it? Then this role could be for you!

Our Place are currently looking for people who have an interest in arts and craft activities that can help support our clients at our weekly sessions to take part and inspire them in crafty activities. The sessions run at different times, and we understand if you can only commit to an hour a week within that session. You can do more hours if you would like, but just an hour would make a huge difference to our clients.

Recruitment process:

If anyone is interested in becoming our Arts and Craft Creators, then please register your interest below or email Ourplace_barnsley@gmx.com and we will be in touch to have an informal chat.

Skills and quaifications:

What’s important is that our clients have a great time while they are with us, as should you. We have several clients that enjoy undertaking craft activities and need someone to help come up with new ideas, teach them new techniques and just get covered in glue and glitter with them!

We need your craft experience and inspiration, and hope you have a great time while you are doing something you enjoy, which in return will ensure our clients have a great few hours too. We cannot guarantee you will go home glitter free though!

No formal qualifications are required, just a passion for all things crafty and artistic, be friendly and approachable and willing to help make someone’s day by getting them involved in activities.

You don’t need to provide your own craft supplies, as we have some already, but would welcome anything you would like to introduce to the group.
