****All new applications are on hold during Covid 19****


We are blessed with our numbers of volunteers and so are not able to accept new volunteers to work in the Sanctuary building at the moment. Please do check back with us in a few months if this is a role you are interested in. 


We are however looking for people able to teach our Little School classes to assist the current team. Please see below for details. We also need people who are willing to collect donations for us, perhaps on weekends, and bring them in to the Sanctuary during the week. Do let us know if this is something you feel you can help with. 

We are open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10:30-13:30 for asylum seekers or refugees to come and get a food parcel, or to get clothing, books, hygiene items or toys.

Please see our Food and clothes page for more information.
