In 2013, The Welcome was awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service in recognition of all the hard work and effort put in by our volunteers.

Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteers have been vital to the success of The Welcome to date.  Would you like to volunteer - either to give something back or to gain some skills that will help you to get closer to the workplace?  We have many opportunity for volunteers to help in the kitchen, work in the cafe, help with activities and assist with the running and administration of the Charity.  If you are interested in helping with any of these, please don't hesitate to get in contact with us.


The Welcome is very dependent on individual and business contributions to meet its day to day operational costs.  As you are probably aware, local government funding has been reduced considerably of the last couple of years and is unlikely to increase in the near future.  If you feel you or your company could help The Welcome in any way, whether that be with money, goods, services or time, we would love to hear from you as we strongly believe that everything that is donated to The Welcome helps improve a life and strengthen the community. 

If you would like to make a donation, please contact Sarah Riley for further information.

Alternatively, you can make a donation directly using our Virgin Money Site.  Please just follow the link 


 In 2011, The Welcome was recognised for its contribution to the Big Society
