Volunteering with Us
“Volunteering has given me new skills and confidence through the weekly interactions and the specialist training it has provided. I’m very grateful”

Meet Me Befrienders
Meet Me Befrienders is an extension of Entelechy Arts Meet Me programme of activity for isolated older people. As a volunteer, you will take part in group befriending activity and support isolated older people to be more connected to their community including; sing-a-long sessions; movement work and movie meetups. During the sessions, befrienders play a vital role in helping to support older people in the group engage with group work.
Meet Me At Downham Leisure Centre
A Movie club like no other—open to anyone over 60 in Lewisham, including those living with Dementia and their carers. We are looking to recruit volunteers to support isolated older people to take part and help create an inclusive, safe and open environment for everyone taking part.
Meet Me at Downham Leisure Centre will work with older people coming to terms with changes in their life (such as changes in health; mobility; cognition and social relationships). Volunteers will be an essential part of the project and will create a welcoming space for members.
Meet me at the Ackroyd Centre
Meet me at the Ackroyd centre is a twice-monthly programme of artistic workshops for older people. The sessions take inspiration from Meet Me at the Albany, Entelechy Art’s award-winning arts club for isolated older people.
We are looking for compassionate and friendly individuals who enjoy art making. You don’t need any prior experience of working with older people just an openness and willingness to learn.
Volunteers play a vital role in supporting Entelechy Arts’ work.
You can get involved by working alongside our participants in a range of weekly creative events like helping to run a film club, supporting people to access our events or Befriending.
“I love the fact that Meet Me is so inclusive. Whatever your face or faith or ability everyone is so inclusive and welcoming.” Project volunteer
