Volunteering at Arachne is a great opportunity to get involved with the local community, learn new skills or rediscover old ones. 

What skills can you gain?

We welcome volunteers who want to gain more experience. Our volunteers have the chance to take part in training and will be given the support needed to succeed in their roles. We provide references for our volunteers, so you are able to both gain new experience and boost your CV.

Volunteering Positions

Volunteers offer a range of skills which complement the expertise of our paid staff. Many of our activities and services are delivered by volunteers including skills classes and workshops. 

Volunteers can offer their skills on a one-off or short term basis, such as support with individual events, workshops or technical and IT expertise. We have a range of volunteering roles with different levels of involvement or commitment to suit your circumstances.

Volunteer criteria

As Arachne is aimed solely at women and provides a woman only space, all our volunteer roles are open to women only in accordance with the Equality Act 2010. This is so that our most vulnerable service users feel comfortable when accessing the centre.
