Support older adults to take part with London Bubble

We are looking for volunteers to support the delivery of our Creative Elders Programme, which offers creative opportunities to older adults living locally to us.

Posted: 10/03/2022

Our Creative Elders Programme offers creative opportunities to older adults living locally to us. We run weekly theatre making workshops in 6 sheltered housing units in Southwark where residents are encouraged to share stories and anecdotes, to move, laugh, play and connect.

We are looking for volunteers to
support the programme by:

– Assisting our workshop leaders at
weekly or fortnightly creative sessions

– Supporting older adults to attend
Bubble events

Your role would be to get to know the
group, join in with creative workshops and support people to take part. You would also help with
refreshments and support our workshop leaders with ongoing evaluation.

We are
particularly keen to engage with volunteers aged 59-69.


Times & dates
groups meet on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday afternoons and Tuesday &
Friday mornings in Southwark, SE16 & SE15.
You can support one or more groups.
Commitments are flexible, you don’t need to be available every week but we need
to know in advance which dates you can do.
You would also have the opportunity to support events & trips throughout
the year.

Our next Induction and Training session
for Creative Homes volunteers is on Monday 5th February, from 6-8pm at
London Bubble
 (3-5 Elephant Lane, Rotherhithe, SE16 4JD)


Is this right for me?
Yes, if you…
– Have an interest in and enjoy creative activities and the arts
– Are interested in meeting a diverse group of people, including adults living
in sheltered housing
– Can get to know and listen to group members and support them around their
specific needs
– Have or are willing to apply for a DBS check (processed by London Bubble free
of charge)
