Activity and Entertainment Volunteers

Details Hide[-]

We're the people who create revitalising holidays for disabled people and carers and we're looking for university societies or groups of friends to support us in providing activities in the holiday centres for our guests or performing as part of our evening entertainment.
We think this is a great opportunity to use and improve your talents and help make our guests' holidays truly special.

Are you part of a drama group or band? Are you part of the circus skills society or a magician? Are you a budding artist or yoga enthusiast? Whatever your talent or interest, we would love to hear from you!

We have activities and entertainment taking place in our respite holiday centres every day of the week, throughout the year so we are certain we can find a time that suits your schedule!
