We’re excited to announce that we will be opening in just under two weeks on Monday 24 January!

Building renovation

The bulk of the renovation work is complete and we are now onto the final touches! We have scheduled two drop in sessions for you to help out with touching up paint, hanging pictures, cleaning and sorting bedding. Pop by any time between the following times, any help is greatly appreciated:

  • Thursday 13 January, 10-2pm
  • Friday 14 January, 10-4pm

We are still in need of furniture for the building, have a look at our Wishlist to see what we’re looking for. Please tick off anything you plan to donate so we can keep track.

Volunteering

We still need volunteers for the evening, night and morning shifts. If you are interested, please fill in the application form.

A reminder that you won’t be able to volunteer until you have completed training, click here to sign up (you need to have completed the application form first). We have spaces on our virtual training session tomorrow at 10am if you’d like to join!

If you have signed up and completed the training you will be invited to sign up for shifts over the next few days.

Thank you

A huge thank you to everyone who has helped decorate, donated furniture, supported us financially and given their time to get us to where we are – we couldn’t do this without you!
