In Mature Company | Volunteers needed

Young at art - Food Glorious Food © Sara Teresa

From September 2018, we’re looking to recruit enthusiastic volunteers to support a team of musicians and dance artists working in three care homes in Leeds. The sessions will run once a week and will range from one-to-ones for individuals who may be room-bound, small groups and larger groups. The sessions will explore the impact of touch and measure how creativity can reduce social isolation and loneliness amongst care residents living with Dementia.

We’re looking for:

Friendly individuals who have an interest or experience in dance, music or befriending. We would particularly welcome volunteers over the age of 50 who have some knowledge of care homes. However, we will offer support and training for all our volunteers.

There are various ways in which you get involved and you can join in at any point during the project’s three years.

The three areas we will be working in are Hyde Park, Pudsey and Morley. Ideally volunteers will have easy access to these areas and will be available once a week.

To find out more, please come along to our information morning on:
Wednesday 19 September, 10.30am – 12.00pm
Yorkshire Dance, LS9 8AH
