Art therapist, North Ayrshire

We are excited to be expanding our children's art therapy programme into North Ayrshire. We are looking for a full time Art Therapist to deliver group therapeutic work, one-to-one art therapy and dyadic art therapy

Impact Arts’ Young Gallery: Art Therapy project has been running for three years, offering children in the East End of Glasgow one-to-one art therapy. We are delighted to now be expanding the project, bringing it to North Ayrshire for the first time.

With support from the Robertson Trust, the Volant Charitable Trust, the Bank of Scotland Foundation and the Rayne Foundation the project has been awarded multi-year funding for one-to-one art therapy, dyadic art therapy sessions for parent/carer and child, and small group therapeutic art sessions with children in schools.

The project is specifically targeted at primary school-aged children (aged 5-12) who are:

  • affected by adverse childhood experiences
  • affected by drug or alcohol misuse in the family unit
  • or care experienced.

The work will have an emphasis on supporting positive life transitions, e.g. from primary to secondary school.

For more information and to apply, please download a job pack and application form. Completed applications should be emailed to by 12noon on Friday 15th February 2019.
