We have volunteering opportunities for all ages, all skill levels and all walks of life.

 

Our volunteer led, non-profit responds to the needs of our local community to bring about social change.   We have a positive social impact on the lives of socially disadvantaged groups.  In particular, individuals effected by domestic/sexual abuse, mild to moderate mental health conditions and cultural deprivation (BME groups).

 

Achieved by running community projects providing skill attainment, education, artistic pursuits and counselling.  We increase participation in the arts, education and wellbeing.  We run 6 such projects centred on our organisations ethos “That each individual in society, irrespective of race, ethnic origin, gender, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, creed, disability, age, religion or political belief has the right to be and to achieve all they want in their lives.

 

Our arts programme develops emerging socially disadvantaged artists, experiencing barriers to participation and access to artistic employment opportunities.  We achieve this by supporting artists in their career development; creating opportunities for artist to nurture their talents and assist them gaining employment with our partners and other arts organisations.

 

Our “Abuse Victim Support Programme (AVS Project) ” and “Darkness Makes Sense… In The Light” programme, were designed and ran by individuals affected by domestic/sexual violence and/or mild to moderate mental health conditions to assist in their recovery and increase their ability to participate in the Arts.

 

Both these programmes provide a holistic package of support.  The AVS Project provides a holistic package of emotional and practical support to those dealing with domestic violence, sexual abuse and rape; whether that is something that’s happening now or has happened in the past, providing immediate and free one to one counselling for individuals, in safe and secure surroundings; whilst Darkness Makes Sense Project provides a holistic package of emotional and practical support to those dealing with mild to moderate mental health issues.

 

Our “Diverse Britain” Project highlights the social injustices experienced by BME individuals as well as highlighting Luton’s diverse art and cultural heritage and the contributions that all nations have made to modern Britain.

 

We use art as an essential bridge across language, cultural and age differences. Art becomes our shared link, the glue that shapes our understanding of how we see ourselves and each other.  These programmes provide both participants and the audience the freedom to create, integrate and bring public attention to their cause.

 

We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds, and can facilitate volunteer opportunities for all people.  Many of our clients are also volunteers for the organisation, in this way we have socially/materially disadvantaged individuals helping to support other socially/materially disadvantaged individuals, ensuring empowerment for all.
