The Drop In Centre has a committed and enthusiastic team of volunteers and are always keen to recruit new people.

We offer a safe and supportive environment with regular ongoing training and supervision and are committed to the personal development of our volunteers. During the year we provide a number of opportunities for social events as a thank you for all the hard work of our volunteers.

We value our volunteers, without whom the centre would not be able to function.
