Volunteer with us

Volunteers are fundamental to the running of Circus Eruption. They dedicate a huge amount of time and experience to its continual growth and development. However, volunteers also need to be acknowledged by giving them new opportunities to develop their own skills and learn new ones through an extensive training programme.

Volunteer hours are usually between 4:00 and 6:15 for Junior Circus, 6:30 and 9:30pm on a Tuesday and 5:30-8:30pm for Wednesday Youth Circus (for asylum seekers and refugees). Family Circus is unfortunately on hold.

What do you need to volunteer with us?

You must be over the age of 18 years old, and also need to be reliable and have a good sense of fun. As Circus Eruption is a project for young people all volunteers must be willing to complete a police disclosure check.

What don’t you need to volunteer with us?

Circus skills are useful BUT in no way essential to volunteering, and can be developed when you volunteer with us. Having circus skills is not essential because volunteers can have a number of different roles which includes:

  • Help us to set up the workshop
  • Supporting young people to learn circus skills
  • Recognising the achievements of the young people, and encouraging them to try new things
  • Working with an individual young person to involve them in our activities
