We Love Our Volunteers!

Volunteers are at the heart of Our House – without their passion, dedication and skills much of what we do wouldn’t happen. We invite and appreciate people willing to share their knowledge, skills and time for the benefit of the community in which we all live.

Get in touch with us if you would like to share your skills and time as a Volunteer – we’d love to have you on board!
