  • Plus... art activities, community garden groups, a community fridge at our new heritage centre, and more.
“I originally came to ACE about five years ago for support for my mental health and wellbeing and joined the art group, which I loved. That helped me through a very bad breakdown. From there, I became a member of the pantry and then later on, I joined the team as a volunteer. I started off being supported and now I’m on the other side of things, helping others and volunteering my time. Ever since then I haven’t looked back..." - Sheree
