Why volunteer? What are the benefits?

At Kirkgate Arts, we believe that volunteering can provide a wide range of benefits not just for the organisation, but most importantly for you.

Volunteering with us here in Cockermouth enables you to:

  • Meet new people and socialise
  • Boost your CV with recent experience and training
  • Develop your skills and gain new ones
  • Gain ‘hands-on’ experience in a wide range of varied and exciting roles
  • Give something back to your local community
  • Support creativity, learning and heritage
  • Promote the arts in rural Cumbria
  • Enjoy an inspiring wide range of shows and events

"I do not do any paid work at the moment as I have small children so volunteering fills the same role as paid work would, gain skills maintain existing skills, interact with other adults, gain a sense of achievement. I also gain a lot of satisfaction working for a cause I truly believe in."
