Providing a supportive & progressive programme for Cartwheel Arts volunteers that will help them achieve their goals & those of the charity.

We want to develop our volunteer journey with existing and new volunteers so that we can provide the best support and opportunities for those who help us.

Step 1: Run a successful Volunteer Reconnect Day!

On Tuesday 2nd November we reconnected with our volunteers (and welcomed some new volunteers) with a fun artistic event.

We shared our Trees of Growth that reflected on what makes us want to volunteer, our progress and what our volunteers would like to do in the future.


"I'm not sure where I want to go next with volunteering but I want to help people"

"Cartwheel Arts would help me to develop, improve and encourage me to grow a good and strong foundation"

Your donations will help us to run more events like this over the next year. After the pandemic it is vital that we stay connected with our communities and our volunteers are a huge part of that. 

We'll use this money on providing relevant training and creative opportunities for socialising between volunteers across all projects allowing them to become a team in their own right. This means hiring venues and contracting experienced trainers depending on what our volunteers what to learn so this money will be instrumental in making this project a success.

Here's our latest impact video to give you an idea of the work we do with our volunteers!

This will be a new way of working/offer for our volunteers allowing them to get to know one another, discuss shared goals for their volunteering journey and allow for varying levels of engagement and more opportunities to get involved with our work. With regular provision in accessible venues volunteers could simply access training, support a group/event in the community or help out at the office.


Our volunteers come from all walks of life and engage in different ways including helping at workshops, undertaking research, providing admin support or decorating our windows!


Supporting this project will support our volunteers to access valuable training and opportunities, getting them to where they want to go!
