Art Project Volunteer Opportunities at Leep1

The AND project at Leep1 is an exciting new start up enterprise that designs and sells clothes. The AND team is made up of two lead artists and 8 adults with a learning disability who together build the AND Clothes brand. Their mission is to change the way the world views adults with a learning disability to show off what they can do and not what they can’t.

WE NEED YOU!

We are currently looking for volunteers to support this exciting new project and this is a fantastic opportunity for the right person to get experience in delivering creative activities and supporting adults with a learning disability to build confidence and flourish.

For more information about the project and how to volunteer please contact our volunteer coordinator paul@leep1.co.uk

Leep1 Facebook Group reaches 250 milestone

Together We’re Stronger

On March 16th 2020 we were told the sad news that Leep1 and Cafe Leep were closing until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, out of these dark times a new light shone through. All the friendships, love and mutual support that make Leep1 the wonderful place it is moved to a new space online. The Leep1 Facebook Group was born!

By the end of the first day, the group already had 50 members signed up to join and by the end of the first week we had nearly 100!

Numbers have steadily increased over the weeks and everyday we welcome new faces to this amazing community.

Today, we are so proud to announce that we have now reached 250 members!

Well done to everyone for making it the supportive and wonderful place it is!
