Volunteers are needed to help children with special needs to make and play musical instruments with recycled material.

At Junk Music you will be helping to facilitate 1.5 hour sessions with up to 12 young people aged 8 - 12, with and without additional needs. 

Sessions are led by a music facilitator, with support from volunteers and an Arts Award worker.

There will also be some parent/carer support of participants.

The sessions are music based, making and playing instruments, but have a broader purpose, including increasing confidence and social skills and working with others to plan a performance.

The role will also include setting up and packing down, getting break snacks ready and contributing to evaluations.

Tuesday 30 April & 7, 14, 21 May & 4, 11, 18, 25 June (performance tbc)

This is a unique and amazing project and one which needs reliable and committed volunteers.
