A Community Development initiative, breaking down barriers and isolation, bringing people together for mutual support and friendship.
'A vibrant place of hope and connection, standing tall, reaching all," is an extension of our focus on well-being. When well-being is experienced, people begin to thrive and create their own opportunities. We support people's well-being in our open, safe and friendly environment.
Use of Funds:
All donations will be used to support people in need. These needs can include helping children to access music lessons, sports opportunities and other activities that they would otherwise miss out on. We also have a discretionary fund available for one-off, unexpected expenses which may create undue distress. We encourage self sufficiency and therefore avoid creating reliant relationships. We do not advertise this support, we assess each need as it arises.
The Cottage is a place that provides hope, assistance, life skills and resources for many people. We work to improve the quality of people's lives and to help them become more self sufficient in the community.
Dedicated staff and volunteers work hard to ensure the cottage is a safe, friendly place for all.
