Volunteer Roles

We are currently recruiting for these roles:

Volunteer in our Northmoor Community Diner
The idea behind the Diner is to create a welcoming space for anyone to take a seat, enjoy a freshly cooked meal, meet members of their community and find out what’s going on in the area. The Diner has a Level 5 Food Hygiene rating and is open to everyone in the community every Wednesday 12-2pm. There is a different meat (halal) dish, vegetarian dish and cake cooked every week by our staff and volunteers. There are no set prices for the food but we do accept donations to help keep the service open.
