Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities:

︎ Volunteer Associate Artist

3 courses available to support on:

  1. Arts on Prescription – assisting the artist in preparing, running and clearing up arts sessions, being supportive to participants.  These sessions are led by a professional astist and run during the daytime. 

  2. Art Group – We have a drop-in Art Group on a Monday afternoon (2 - 4pm) at The Old Bath House, Wolverton. Participants can spend some time creating art in a safe and friendly environment. Volunteers help with setting up materials, making refreshments, talking with participants about their art/ techniques and tidying away after the session.

  3. Headstart Art - Our twelve week art programme for young people. Takes place in a local arts venue and will be a small group of up to 10 young people. Led by a professional artist the weekly sessions are welcoming and friendly, allowing space to explore different art mediums and materials. Sessions take place after school.

︎ Volunteer Gardener
Help us to update and maintain the Creative Courtyards at Milton Keynes University Hospital. We have also commissioned an artist to create a Sensory Garden within one of our garden courtyard areas in the hospital. A volunteer to help with planting and maintenance of the garden would be fantastic.

︎ Volunteer Exhibitions & Collections Assistant
Help us look after and curate Milton Keynes University Hospitals’ art collection; assist with temporary exhibitions and project events, as and when projects arise.

︎ Office Administration - based in the office at MK University Hospital, volunteers can assist with the replying to emails sent to our main inbox and also help log referrals on our participant database and waiting lists. This involves talking to people about our courses and requires attention to detail as you will be entering personal data onto our database.
