About this role:

The post holder will help to support Moon Base, which is a new project that aims to consolidate our various disability arts projects in a dedicated space.  Moon Base will be more than just a drop in facility, it will empower users to explore their creativity in ways that are meaningful to them.  The project will engage with people, especially those with a learning disability, in an innovative way which is designed to help people to explore their creative nature, become more involved in the community and feel a reduction in feelings of loneliness.  The project aims to target those at greatest risk of exclusion and isolation, who could be perceived as ‘hard to reach’.
