Help us to help others

Guest numbers rose 60% in the pandemic and we have moved to a new, bigger premises on Alstone Lane.

We need lots of new volunteers to help us feed our guests, help them out, join in activities and keep the place running smoothly. We also need volunteers at our donations Hub at 39 Grosvenor St to organise donations and respond to Guest requests.
