We currently have 60 regularly attending members, (this numbers is growing). Our staff know each and every one of our members extremely well, we have seen a great deal of personal development within many of our members. Our members are very involved in decisions made about their service, this gives them a sense of ownership, pride, confidence and achievement. We have seen many existing friendships strengthen and many new ones form.
We would like support with a variety of roles to support us to continue with improving and expanding the service currently offered.
