Whether you are an individual looking for a unique and valuable experience, a member of the public hoping to make a difference, or a business wanting to take an active role in the community, Steps For The Future welcomes your support.
With our long-term goal of expanding opportunities in the Arts by providing classes in The Performing Arts to people with differences across the Derbyshire region and potentially nation-wide, Steps For The Future are currently seeking volunteers.
Are you inspired by the Arts and passionate about music and dance? Are you looking for a chance to develop your skills and add to your CV? By sharing your time and expertise, you can facilitate the creativity of the students and make a real and tangible difference to their lives.
We have many opportunities within our classes including classroom support, performance support and fundraising etc. This entails supporting our students to achieve their goals and ambitions in a safe and secure environment, ensuring our students get the best they can within the classes. We offer all our volunteers training within the role including person centred, safeguarding, autism and Asperger’s, dementia and Makaton. If you are interested in this role or would like to know more please get in touch.
We work closely with Derby College, offering work experience for students who are wanting to broaden their transferable skills and giving them the opportunity to increase their knowledge about adults with disabilities.
have been a volunteer at Steps For The Future for over two months now and am
enjoying every minute of it! At first I didn’t know what to expect but was
immediately put at ease from both volunteers and students (and made very
welcome). I feel very fortunate to watch the students progress in confidence
and their independence grow’.

"I got the job! I can't thank you and Steps For The Future enough for helping me into my chosen career. I will try to remain a volunteer for as long as I can. Keep me informed as to when you have shows or events and I will do my best to help out."
