Become a volunteer
ActionSpace runs visual arts projects for Adults (18+) with learning disabilities. Each project caters for 8-10 artist participants, who are encouraged to explore and develop their individual artist practices. Sessions are lead by one of our experienced artists tutors, who is supported by two volunteer session assistants. The volunteers work under the direction of the artist tutor, who will ask them to work with individual participants helping them to access materials and solve creative problems. ActionSpace provides access to art activities only, any participants who have personal care or support needs brings a support worker with them to provide for these.
Volunteers are crucially important to ActionSpace as they allow us to provide the bespoke 1:1 attention that enables our artist participants to thrive. We look for practicing artists who are able to bring their own creativity, energy and sensitivity to the project.

Take part in a sponsored event and raise money for Action Space. Here is something to inspire you – a few months ago Anthony Mitchell completed a 10 mile wheelchair walk to raise funds for Action Space. Skegness Standard reported: ‘Anthony managed to not only finish the course last Tuesday, but also smash his previous five-and-a-half hour time by 30 minutes, completing his second attempt at the challenge in five hours.’ Tony has been involved in Action Space for over 37 years and his support is greatly valued.
