Our volunteers make a very valuable contribution and we are always looking for more people to volunteer time to Coda Music Trust.

You can help us through volunteering in a number of ways, such as working in our office, helping with groups (such as Beautiful Sounds), helping out in our Cafe or spending some time keeping our garden neat and tidy.

We are currently looking for volunteers for the following:


We are looking for a volunteer to help us out in our Café on a Monday or Tuesday afternoon between 3pm and 6pm.

Full induction and Barista training will be provided.

This would be an ideal volunteer role for a young local person looking for some experience in a friendly café setting. Or for a retired volunteer, as it’s a welcoming and sociable environment.


Beautiful Sounds sessions are weekly music workshops for adults with learning difficulties led by music leaders Chris Hopgood & Stuart Jebbitt. Whether you have kindly volunteered for us previously or would like to volunteer with us for the first time, we are looking for people to help us at these sessions.

We are specifically looking for a volunteer to help us with our Beautiful Sounds sessions on a Monday and Tuesday between 10am and 12.30pm (the actual session runs from 10.30 – 12 but we would like help with setting up and clearing away).

They are lively, a lot of fun and really fulfilling for participants, carers and volunteers – you can get a flavour of Beautiful Sounds from this clip click here 

Jan, a regular volunteer for Beautiful Sounds, said this about her experience at these sessions: “For a few hours every week I enjoy the company of a group of wonderfully diverse individuals whose enthusiasm and joy is infectious. I am a volunteer and together we make music.”

Volunteers for both positions need to be dependable, as we do rely on your attendance once committed but, in return for volunteering, we offer full induction and training, the opportunity to meet lots of lovely people, make new friends and work in a unique, friendly environment.

If you would like to know more – or if you would be interested in helping us out and giving up a few hours each week to help us out, please get in touch.
