Purple Patch Arts
Description of the role:

Purple Patch Arts is a registered charity which exists to provide inclusive, creative learning opportunities that improve the lives of learning-disabled and autistic people by expanding their understanding of, and engagement with, the world.

Skills and qualities needed for the role:

As a value-led organisation our priority is to recruit Trustees who share our outlook and vision. We’re looking for people who can demonstrate a strong commitment to Purple Patch Arts’ values of Humanity, Passion, Creativity and Authenticity; people who care about what we do and who want to contribute to it. It’s not necessary to have previous Board experience as training will be available; we exist to support people to reach their potential, and that means Trustees too! We’re mainly interested in finding out who you are and what you might bring to the charity. We’re looking forward to meeting some new people and will support you to develop in the role. We welcome applications from people from all walks of life, and we particularly welcome applications from disabled people, people of colour and young people as we understand the importance and value of a diverse Board. We are actively seeking to increase the diversity of our Board to reflect all the communities in which, and with which, we work.

Practical information:

While our work happens all over Yorkshire, including Harrogate and Skipton, the Board meet in person four times a year, currently during the working day, at our office in Beeston in South Leeds.

Organisation Information

Purple Patch Arts provide innovative, inclusive, creative learning opportunities that improve the lives of learning-disabled and autistic adults by expanding their understanding of, and engagement with, the world.

In our Lifelong Learning programmes, we use creativity (dance, drama, music, literature and visual arts) as a way to make educational topics and themes more accessible for learning-disabled and autistic adults. All of our practitioners are highly skilled in delivering sessions to suit a range of needs, using a multi-sensory approach which creates an immersive and engaging experience for participants. As well as promoting lifelong learning our programmes also help participants to improve their social skills, confidence and independence skills.

Our Lifelong Learning Programmes run in community venues across Yorkshire, 10am – 3pm during academic term time (38 weeks/year). We offer new participants two free taster sessions, with programmes then costing £45 per day. Throughout the day we do lots of different arts education activities, and our workshops are interspersed with lots of social time which enables participants to develop their social skills. We do not provide personal care at Purple Patch but participants can bring along support to help them with this. Participants will also need to bring their own lunch. Sadly, we cannot organise transport.

If you’d like further information or would like to book somebody you know onto a taster session, please email info@purplepatcharts.org or ring 07510330105.
