Volunteering Opportunities

The Dragon Café runs with the dedicated support of around 50 volunteers each week. We aim to give all our volunteers a supportive and satisfying experience of working in a creative environment.

No particular experience required. A willingness to learn is the main thing.

We offer a range of roles which may be new to you or which may build on your existing skills, whichever you prefer. These roles include:

On Mondays (4 hour shifts) – providing a warm welcome on reception; setting up and packing away our creative spaces; serving delicious food and drinks from the kitchen; keeping the show on the road with stage management; learning technical support in lighting and sound; overseeing our information table.

Between Mondays – keeping accurate records in administration and data input; an eye for detail in graphic design, IT and website; support the continued success of the project with fundraising and communications research.

For all our volunteers, we provide food and travel expenses, plus training in our mindful working ethos, roles and boundaries.

In this way, we aim to build a happy and effective volunteer team who can support The Dragon Café and who can use the experience to assist their onward journey through life.
