More Details About This Role

With the rise in the cost of living, we understand that this winter will be challenging. That’s why we’re re-opening our regular afternoon slot where people can find a warm space and a warm welcome. We are looking for people who would be able to welcome all who come, including making and serving warm drinks and or a simple lunch (soup/bread), ensuring that people have someone to talk to, feel included, and are signposted to other appropriate services within the Health Centre and the local community.
