Stepping Stones is a community service, run by Family Works in South Dunedin, promoting mental and social well being and resilience. The service is focused on teaching clients new skills, assisting people to make informed decisions, and connecting people with their wider community.
They are on the lookout for crafty or handy volunteers.
If you're creative and can sew, they'd love to have you join their sewing group on Friday morning's. Their charity shops are going plastic bag free and their Stepping Stones clients (adults living with mental health challenges) want to support this initiative by designing and sewing re-usable bags for use by the shops. If you're a sewer and want to teach others a skill that you love, then this is the role for you. Sewing machines and fabrics will be provided.
If you are practical and the project are keen seeking volunteers to help make small community woodwork projects, such as Lilliput Libraries, park benches, and planters. There is a small workshop to work in, tools and materials will be supplied, along with friendship and a cuppa.
Volunteers will gain the satisfaction of passing their skills on to enhance others' lives.
Interested volunteers should be either:
The sewing group meets on Friday mornings from 10.00am.
The carpentry group meets on Thursdays from 10.00am - 2.00pm.
Come along to both acitvities as often as you'd like for as long as you'd like.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
