WHALE Arts strives to offer a range of volunteering opportunities that allow people to develop their skills and experience in a supportive, creative environment. Our current opportunities are listed below so if you are interested in discussing these, or any ideas you might have, in more detail then please get in touch.
Volunteer Awards: We are delighted smART CRAFT volunteer Latisha Reihill received an Individual Achievement Award at the Inspiring Volunteering Achievement Awards 7 June 2016, and Community Cinema and Digital Sentinel volunteer David Jacobs received an award 7 June 2017. Fabien Merville, Jan Davies, Julia Davies and Allan McNaughton are recipients of The Spirit of WHALE Award.
Reception/Admin Support: We are looking for volunteer support to help provide a warm welcome to people visiting WHALE Arts and basic administrative support to building users and tenants. If you have a few hours to spare each week we would love to hear from you.
Community Café Volunteer: Our café is launching to the public in late January, and we are looking for volunteers to help us make it a warm, welcoming space to be in. This is a great opportunity for an enthusiastic volunteer to work on their customer service skills in a comfortable situation. We are looking for people to volunteer at least 3 hours per shift with flexibility around days. All training will be provided in the café, and freshly made food and hot drinks will be provided during your shift.
With over 7000 visitors each year, WHALE Arts needs regular maintenance to keep it looking great. Painting, gardening, and team cleans all play an important part in this process and offer a great way for staff from our corporate supporters to make a difference in our community.
