Adults Programme Internship

Unpaid role, expenses paid
Job description

Body & Soul is a charity dedicated to transforming the life-threatening effects of adverse childhood experiences. Whether someone has been neglected or abused, trafficked, attempted suicide, or stigmatised because of HIV – we have helped to liberate thousands of people from the trauma that controls them. Our community provides people of all ages with a wide range of innovative and creative programmes that support physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being. We have developed a ‘whole person’ model of care rooted in a strengths-based approach that nurtures connection, healing, and growth. Through building members’ protective factors, we promote and develop resiliency, interrupt latent vulnerability, and transform lives.


This internship will focus on supporting our children’s service which is unique in addressing the needs of our 0 – 12-year-olds who live in challenging circumstances or have experienced trauma in their early lives. Our approach brings us closely together with families to ensure our youngest members achieve personal and social growth and positive change through access to a uniquely nurturing and validating environment.


We are looking for a creative individual to join the children’s service with experience in photography, drama, music, dance/movement or spoken word. Ideally, this individual would have experience working with groups and delivering creative workshops for a therapeutic purpose. Their skills would be highly beneficial to our service as creativity has proven to be a great mechanism to facilitate healing and explore aspects of developmental trauma. Additionally, children who are non-verbal or reluctant to social interactions can participate in creative tasks freely, increasing their confidence. Currently in the team we have skills such as arts and crafts, Lego play and play therapy skills. We are looking for an individual with further creative skills to enhance the creative edge of our service and programming.


Our intern will be:

  • Assisting with the research and planning of weekly children’s service evenings.
  • Leading and supporting the delivery of the service evenings.
  • Collecting outcomes of the service evenings.
  • Evaluating programme impact and outcomes and reviewing if changes are needed. 


We are looking for an intern who:

  • Is passionate about working with children.
  • Has a creative, proactive, and adaptable approach.
  • Has skills needed for facilitating groups in photography, drama, music, dance/movement and/or spoken word.
  • Is looking to gain work experience in the field of children’s rights, programme development and social care.
  • Is willing to take on responsibility and work independently.
  • Able to commit to a Monday, Tuesday (evening), and Wednesday for 3-months.


This is an unpaid internship; with expenses covered if needed. 


We offer regular learning and development opportunities for interns; designed to give a deeper insight into Body & Soul’s unique approach.


This intern role is for our summer intake, running from June- Aug 2024. Interviews will be held on 20-24th May.


If you are interested in applying, please send a CV and cover letter by 12th May.  We look forward to hearing from you!
