Volunteer With Us
Do you like baking? Gardening? Meeting new people? Have spare time? Then we’re a match made in heaven! Or perhaps you have a community idea we can help you develop?

We hope our volunteers develop the skills and confidence to move onto employment or training – if that’s their goal. Thankfully some of our volunteers are happy with us long-term and don’t want to leave us… You don’t need previous experience and we’ll give you support, training, a reference and invitations to volunteer social events. Do get in touch with us to find out more.

Meet some of our lovely volunteers and also find out what we’ve been up to!

Grow for us!

Do you 'grow your own' and have some to spare? We'd love to use local people's produce in the cafe - so if you find yourself with too many tomatoes, plenty of potatoes or a load of lettuces, we'll take some off your hands! Just get in touch or pop in.
