About the host organisation

Organisation Profile: The Together Centre is a new charity based in Dukinfield but open to all. Our vision is to become a place of possibility. We want to see the centre a place where people can come together, feel safe, well and happy, learn, grow and feel a sense of pride and ownership. We offer a range of activities for all but with a focus on providing accessible services for people with disabilities. As a new organisation, we are looking for volunteers who are able to come along and assist with the running of the centre, from working in the office, to providing meals, facilitating sessions and general help.
