Summary

The Face The Music sessions are where we started. Groups of members coming together making music and forming friendships. Usually very high energy!

Detailed description

We are looking for regular, committed volunteers to assist our session leaders on Fridays (mornings and/or afternoons) at our 'Face The Music' sessions in Watford


With all our sessions and activities, we need volunteers to 


  • To enable and empower our learning disabled members to get the most out of their time with Electric Umbrella
  • Engage and encourage member involvement
  • Support the session leader(s) and staff
  • Get to know our members (and whoever accompanies them) - what do they like? What are they not keen on?
  • Model Electric Umbrella behaviour at all times (enthusiasm, engagement, openness)


After an initial trial period, we ask all volunteers to undergo a DBS and reference(s) check.


What we need help with…


  • Setting up and packing away the room 
  • Meeting and greeting the members and their support
  • Engaging and encouraging members (and whoever has come with them) to join in 
  • Support the session leaders in that week’s activities
  • Providing musical support to the session leaders (if that’s your thing)
  • Reporting any concerns to staff


You don't have to be musical, or a musician - just a 'can do' attitude and a willingness to get stuck in!
