Volunteer your skills

We are a small charity with a small staff team
but we have huge plans to make a huge difference in our community.

We’re always looking for people with specific skills and expertise who can advise us or join our Board of Trustees. If you are able to spare a couple of hours a month please email your CV to info@arty-folks.org.uk. Particular areas of interest are HR, PR, IT, and legal advice to enhance our performance.

Create an event

Why not turn something you love into a fundraiser for Arty-Folks?

Fundraising for Arty-Folks is as much about you and your interests as it is about supporting our cause.  It is your chance to try something you’d never otherwise have dreamed of doing, like

  • organising a masked dinner,
  • a paintathon or
  • a dive into crafts.

Use your own creativity and put on your own event to help raise vital funds for our work. Just let us know you are fundraising for us and we will give you all the support you need!

Donate Unwanted Art Materials

Do you have art materials you don’t need or want anymore?

We are always happy to accept artists’ paints like acrylics, oils, water colours as well as brushes, canvases paper, art books, etc.  In fact, anything that artists might need or want.  If we cannot use it for our group work we will make sure it goes to a good home.  Please email us info@arty-folks.org.uk to make arrangements for collection or dropping off

No matter what size, your donation will ensure we can help anyone in Coventry and Warwickshire who needs us.

You can donate securely online directly to https://arty-folks.org.uk/donate/
