Are you a doodler, a cartoonist or fine artist? Could you create a rainbow giraffe, with clouds for wings, and his best friend a blue spotted monkey? Do you think you can draw under time pressure and bring the creative ideas of young people to life? Then we need you.

Help children and young people bring out their creativity and develop new skills and experience by volunteering at Live Tales, Live Theatre's creative writing centre for children.

Volunteer illustrators create drawings to accompany the children’s stories whilst writing volunteers provide encouragement to children one to one or in small groups.

Volunteers must be over 18, and full training and support is provided. The commitment is flexible, and you can do more or less as necessary to fit in with your life.  All prospective volunteers are subject to reference and DBS checks as part of Live Tales’ child protection policy.

“This is such a joyous thing to do!”
