Projects

Nourishing projects

Surplus food is abundant in our society as supermarkets often reject even slightly damaged packaging. 
Transforming this resource into meals and occasions that nourish body and soul is important work that anyone can do; chopping vegetables, stirring soup, welcoming guests and doing the dishes.


Our volunteers prepare and serve meals for anyone at risk of hunger with food that would otherwise be wasted.

Learning projects


For newcomers to our culture the key to integrating, contributing and belonging is to communicate in English. Ensuring that everyone has the English language skills to thrive here is important work.
Our volunteers deliver informal English conversation classes to recent migrants who are keen to be a part of our communities.

 

Speak English Programme

Tues, Wed, Thurs, Friday, 10-12.

If you would like to help people improve their English, have a look at the English Facilitator Role.

Making projects
 

Re-imagining the waste that surrounds us and transforming surplus materials into useful things for good causes can be a healing act in itself. Focusing hand and eye as a craftsman, while working shoulder to shoulder, sharing tools, skills and experience fosters camaraderie.


Our volunteers run a communal workshop where members make and mend, re-use and up-cycle. We produce equipment for our Growing projects and work on personal initiatives.

St Mary's Mesters is open several days each week, if you'd like to know more, come along to our Information Drop-In and chat to our staff.

If you want a more active role, have a look at the Workshop Supervisor Role.

 

Growing projects


Growing food ourselves in every-day spaces enriches our relationship with the food we eat and the outdoors. Understanding how food arrives on our plate and getting our hands dirty can be very therapeutic.
 

Our volunteers grow vegetables in under-used city spaces from Church yards to front yards. Sharing growing tips and celebrating home-grown food is a great way to bring neighbours together.

If you want to help out, come along to our Information Drop-In and chat to our staff.

If you want a more active role, have a look at the Growing Supervisor Role.

 

Connecting projects


Loneliness and isolation are hidden and endemic problems in our communities. Sharing the things you are passionate about is one of the joys of life, and the most natural reason for people to connect.


Our volunteers create a wealth of opportunities to share everything from Art to Zumba, by forming Groups, Classes, Events and Skills Exchanges. 

If you want to find out what groups are running at the moment, have a look at Whats Happening, and then come along to our Information Drop-In and chat to our staff.

If you think you could run an Group or a Class, please call us so we can make an appointment for a proper chat.
