  • Volunteers are welcome to commit to as many or as few sessions a week / month as they wish but to help with rotas will need to be consistent with what they can offer.

We have in-depth knowledge of the local area and its people, we tackle the root causes leading to enduring results and are prepared to deal with complex issues that other agencies shy away from. The Door travels with people for the long term – walking alongside them, carrying the burden and never giving up.
