Time Commitment

Term 1
Volunteer meetings are held every 1-2 weeks throughout term 1. Volunteers will be required to undertake a DBS check and complete safeguarding training.

Term 2
Sessions run once a week for one and a half hours at The Gap. Times and dates for 2017 TBC.


Experience with drama, dance or music is a bonus – but NOT AT ALL necessary! All we ask for is a friendly face and enthusiasm to get involved.

All volunteers will be required to:

  • Complete safeguarding training
  • Complete an Enhanced criminal background check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
  • In addition, if you have lived outside of the UK for more than 6 months in the past 5 years you need to obtain a criminal record check from the country you lived in. This is commonly referred to as a Certificate of Good Conduct’
