An inspiring team of positive and fun volunteers

We are supported by inspiring, positive and fun volunteers. We have kitchen teams who make delicious meals out of random ingredients, which is always appreciated. We have Front of House drink servers, befrienders, tutors, musicians and those who offer practical advice, a listening ear and often a lot of laughter. We have a team who organise our donations and complete bags and bags of laundry. Without their dedication and commitment, we would not be able to provide people with the support and respect they deserve.
