We are always looking for skilled and flexible people with an interest in helping those with mental health issues. However, whilst many opportunities in the mental health field usually focus on the clinical, we are looking for people who can be involved whilst sharing or taking part in a new skill. This can be anyone of any age or background that is skilled in any of the following areas:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Information Technology
  • Music
  • Practical Skills (e.g. cooking, decorating)
  • Gardening

This is by no means an exhaustive list and we would love to hear from you if you have other skills that you feel may be beneficial to others.

We are also open to working with local colleges who may be looking for work experience placements.

If this interests you and you would like to discuss with us further, please get in touch HERE

Due to moving to new premises and opening a cafe we are in need of more volunteers. 

We are looking to increase our board of trustees.

  1.    Secretary.
  2.    Trustees with various skills to increase the knowledge input to our Skills Center.

We have had two students this year, Jessica and Libby. Both have spent 2 weeks each experiencing social interaction and Skills development with our members. Involved in arts, crafts and music.
