Weekly on a Monday or Tuesday morning


As part of a supported programme, we work to help residents with Mental Health issues work towards achieving their individual goals, which will enable them to move onto independent living in the community. We would like a volunteer to provide support by collecting a food donation from the Roborough area, to then be delivered to the project in the city centre area. Residents will then, with support, gain necessary cooking skills and produce nutritional meals for themselves. The food is a much needed donation from DCFA. Please note expenses are paid for mileage.
