We aim to create a safe and welcoming atmosphere for everyone. We want to challenge all forms of oppression including those based on race, ethnicity, nationality, creed, gender, sex, class, sexuality, gender reassignment, learning ability, physical impairment, mental illness, HIV status, age, occupation, income, wealth and unrelated criminal conviction.
We are always looking for volunteers to join our team and work with our guests - serving food, offering hope & encouragement, playing board games, supporting leisure activities and much more. We'd also love to hear from you if you'd like to visit the centre and offer a service - we would welcome regular visits from hairdressers, barbers, counsellors, therapists etc.
Volunteering provides many opportunities to learn new skills, meet new people, grow in confidence, and most importantly make a difference to people trying to rebuild their lives. We pay all reasonable travel expenses.
