About the Service: Creative Support’s Extra Care services promote choice, dignity, respect, privacy and security. Our staff teams work to enhance each service user’s quality of life, personal safety and mental and physical wellbeing by working closely with other agencies, family members and the service user.

The activity sessions are designed to reduce levels of social isolation, teach new skills and build on existing skills, and boost levels of confidence and self-esteem. We encourage our service users to access events and activities held at our services to increase social inclusion.

Purpose of the role: As a Volunteer Music Assistant you will enable our service users to enjoy the therapeutic aspect of listening and singing along to music. You will also give them the opportunity to reminisce on songs they may remember from their youth while learning new songs.

We are looking for a musical individual who wants to help with a weekly music session within the Extra Care Services. This role may include learning and playing songs with our service users and supporting people in the music activity.

This is a great opportunity for someone wanting to gain skills in group facilitation, and who would also like to share their musical ability in a caring and rewarding way.
