An open, inclusive and diverse community
We support people in our community who are in transition in life. We welcome and support people going through change, coming to terms with or dealing with new or challenging circumstances, looking to acquire new skills or new ways of approaching difficulties. We are a family of people who have or still do feel isolated and need to share with, learn from and connect to others.
We provide a space, a place, activities, social enterprises and services and most importantly a group of people wherein everyone can feel a sense of belonging, of ownership and feel valued. We ask all our members to contribute their time, their insight and their humanity. Members can also, if they wish, contribute formerly to the project by volunteering. Whether its peeling a potato, washing dishes, making soup, serving people, cutting fabric, sewing zips, designing products, drawing on wood or making exquisite furniture, we need people to contribute to the wellbeing of others as well as help sustain the building and our services. By listening we have learnt that even when life is at its most challenging, even when people feel at their lowest, they can contribute something precious to our lives.
