The Centre is very lucky have some excellent volunteers who give their time to support its activities.

We have been able to provide volunteering opportunities to people in the following areas:

  • Teaching and learner support, including ESOL, Gardening, Sewing and Computing
  • Cooking for events and in our regular St John’s Chefs group; and
  • Children and Young People’s activities, including holiday activities.
  • Supporting the Community Response Hub, answering calls and enquiries.

We have also been involved with local schools, enabling young people to undertake their work experience. In addition, we have worked with student placements who need teaching hours as part of their courses. Our Board of Directors is made up of volunteers who give of their time cheerfully and freely.
