Why volunteer at Rowan?

Rowan is a vibrant, independent, registered charity providing an arts centre and forest school for adults with learning disabilities. 

Volunteers play a key role at Rowan and help in a range of areas, including our creative workshops, our forest school Rowan Rangers, at fundraising events and in the office. People volunteer for lots of good reasons:

“Rowan is a friendly, supportive and safe place” says volunteer Veronica.

“It is the happiest place” says volunteer Mark.

Volunteers at Rowan need to be over 16, although we do have a limited number of volunteer roles for Duke of Edinburgh students working toward Bronze and Silver awards.

Personal details

Some volunteer roles at Rowan are subject to DBS checks. This will be clarified at interview. It would however be helpful if you could advise.
A key part of Rowans’ recruitment process is to consult two referees about your fit for the role for which you are applying. Please therefore provide the details below of two people who are well placed to discuss this with us. (Please note referees should not be related to you in any way).

Referee 2

I have read this document and understand that a police check may be made via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) before I may commence volunteering at Rowan. (The DBS check can take up to a month).
