“I've never worked at an organisation with such compassionate and hard-working individuals.” – a meals volunteer


If you have hidden talent such as painting classes or yoga that we could add to our activities list and would like to share through volunteering we can support a flexible and rewarding experience. If you have 4 hours a month to spare and a passion to make an impact in the lives of people we support, by creating a place for people to feel safe, to belong, and to connect. We would like you to join our dedicated team
