We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to gain experience in working with children and young people in an inclusive environment and to share their talents with us! We are particularly keen to find people with skills in movement and dance, music, devised drama and directing, set or costume design or technical and stage management experience.

We are a registered charity and work hard to keep our doors open via constant fundraising. If you would like to support us by making a donation or setting up a regular monthly payment then please contact sarah@hackneyshed.org.uk for our bank details or follow the paypal links on the website to make a secure online one off donation or regular payment.

If you would like any further information about how you can support us or an application to come and join us as a volunteer then please contact Sarah

Please Note; It is the policy of Hackney Shed that all practitioners who work with our children and young people have a DBS check (which we can facilitate if you do not already have one.)
