Our staff are supported by Volunteers who are a key asset to the organisation, bringing different skills that assist in the daily running of the centre. Some of their roles include preparing and cooking meals, washing dishes, helping run daily activity groups, gardening, DIY, admin tasks as well as assisting with our transport to collect members.
We continue to work towards retaining our Investors in Volunteers Award which shows how much we appreciate the support of our Volunteers and the contribution they make to our service delivery.
