We are pleased to advise that the Melbourne City Mission Community Friend Program (CFP) is recruiting Volunteers to facilitate a Music Group for 2022 in Melbourne’s North (Coburg). CFP supports adult participants (18-64 years old), who are living with a mild disability or mental health issue. The music group will be held at a music studio in Coburg.
The music group will have around 6 participants living with a mild to moderate disability and/or mental health issue. This includes physical, intellectual, psychiatric, sensory disability, acquired brain injury, and mental health.
A studio space will be available for use, located in Coburg. Music instruments and equipment will be supplied for use in the group. Instruments include, guitars, keyboards, microphones, drum kit, Tabla drums etc.
CFP are in the stages of confirming final details for the Music Group. We are hoping this group will meet up every fortnight. At present, we are gauging availability to decide if this will be on a weekend or during the week.
We do not specifically require musicians to volunteer with the group However, it would be beneficial if a guitarist was interested in volunteering.. If you have a love for music, hold enthusiasm for participant engagement and a general care to promote participant growth and expression – this is the role for you..!
Once you have contacted CFP to express your interest, an application will be sent to complete and return, then we can meet on Zoom or in person for an induction/interview to get to know a little more about you and chat more about the program, and volunteers will apply for an NDIS Worker Screening Check.
Could you see yourself becoming a part of CFP..?
Feel free to get in contact with us to find out more….!
