We are a Charity, inspiring people with disabilities and long term health issues to discover their creative energy and build self-confidence through art.
Working at their own pace in supportive groups, our members find both relaxation and fresh stimulus, along with the opportunity to make new friends.
Your few hours a week could make a real difference to people's lives. We are seeking volunteers to support our Cobham art group. Not every volunteer needs artistic ability, but you do need to be a people person, enthusiastic, and ready to help create a friendly, welcoming environment where members feel relaxed and able to make the most of their time with us.
As a volunteer you will be part of a team. A good team will include organisational skills, artistic experience, finance management and making the refreshments. Volunteers are the people who make Conquest Art possible.
Could you join the Cobham team?
Conquest Art volunteers can rely on the support and encouragement of the Trustees and Charity Co-ordinator.
