Moving on from Lockdown
Our opening hours at the Vine Centre are now Monday-Thursday 9am-4pm and Friday 9am-2pm
We are able to see clients face to face though we still observe mask wearing and social distancing measures to keep our staff and those we support safe.
Community Cupboard - As our food delivery service has now come to an end, we have introduced a Community Cupboard. This is open 3 days a week Mon-Wed 10am-3pm with the aims of reducing food waste as well as food poverty. We welcome people from all backgrounds to come and access this facility, either by bringing donations to exchange for other items, or if they are in need simply to collect food. We do of course offer a wrap around service and so are able to offer our support services to anyone. No appointment is necessary, just turn up when the Cupboard is open. We are operating a COVID safe environment so no-one should feel worried about coming along.
