Volunteering and Placements

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at HOOT. Volunteers form an important part of our team at Hoot by helping to support our creative arts sessions and events.

There are currently two ways to get involved as a volunteer – volunteering regularly supporting a particular session in Huddersfield, Batley, or Dewsbury; or on a more ad hoc basis supporting an event led by us, or one of our partner organisations, as a member of our ‘Events Crew’.


Volunteering places are limited and as some of our projects are funded by Kirklees Council, we sometimes prioritise offering volunteering opportunities to Kirklees residents. Due to the nature of our work we are unable to accept request for placements and volunteering from people under the age of 18.

We currently do not have any volunteering opportunities.

Student Placements

We are also happy to consider hosting short term student placements from a variety of art focused courses e.g. arts and community arts courses; and for those with arts or support work experience from non-arts courses e.g. sociology, psychology etc.  If your course requires that you complete a placement, and you are interested in gaining experience in the area of creative arts, mental health and wellbeing, please get in touch.

Please note that we are currently only able to consider year long placements from those with music technology skills as these would be based in our digital studio.
