Get Crafty in Matson

Together in Matson is based at the Redwell Community Centre right in the heart of Matson. Its local community face many challenges, but also have many talents, skills and ambition at their disposal. With support, nurturing and guidance these hidden strengths and talents can be unlocked to allow the community and individuals to blossom, achieve their aspirations and lead fulfilling healthy lives that make a positive difference to the world.


Glo-Active offer positive, enjoyable, affordable activities for all young people, with and without disabilities. 


From time to time both Together in Matson and Glo-Active, both based at Redwell Community Centre, like to provide inclusive arts and crafts activities for both children and adults. We are looking for people who can run different arts and crafts workshops for us, whether on a one off or more regular basis.

What's involved?

Whatever your Arts and Crafts passion or talent we would love for host you for a workshop at our Redwell Community Centre. We can provide the room, basic furniture like tables and covers and chairs which can be set up to suit the activity as well as a very enthusiastic audience. Glo-Active would be delighted to look over any activities and advise (if needed) how they can be made more inclusive. We are happy for people to just committing to running one activity as a one off, or for people to commit to providing something more regularly with us. 


If you’d like to discuss this volunteering opportunity with no obligation, please do email Vanessa on togetherinmatson@redwellcentre.co.uk or Hayley or Lindsay at Glo-Active on  info@glo-active.com

Why get involved?

This is a great opportunity to dip your toe into the water of planning and running inclusive craft activities with a genuine audience in a supportive environment. You’ll get to see what elements of your craft activity really take off and any that maybe need a bit more work. You’ll gain experience working with a broad and diverse range of people and strengthen your communication and planning skills.


It will be a very social volunteer opportunity as you’ll meet lots of new people from the participants to the other Redwelll centre volunteers.
