Art and health activities

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help deliver arts and health activities in community buildings across Wyre. You will be fully supported to lead arts and crafts sessions to help people in our communities to learn fun and creative things and enjoy relaxed, social get togethers. All arts materials will be purchased by the council so there is no cost to yourself. All we ask is for a couple of hours of your time every week.

Activities include our Reminiscence Sessions, that invite people to see our interesting displays of old artefacts and objects, decades scrapbooks, and more.

Are you good at painting, drawing, crocheting, needlework, knitting, creative writing, paper crafts, or digital art? We’d love to hear from you!
