At Manna we offer people placements who we feel would benefit from either short or long term support. We are currently open 2 days a week from 10-5pm, and have a number of individuals who attend either weekly, twice weekly, or on an ad hoc basis, depending on what is best for them. We refer to these attendees as ‘Volunteers’. We also run one off events and activity days which can be tailored to suit the needs of the group.
Become a Volunteer
If you become a part of the Manna community then we allocate a member of the team to each Volunteer to offer regular time and support determined upon need. Volunteers have a plan tailored to the individual, which is drawn up in partnership with the Team Member. We recognise there is often a need for long term committed support for the Volunteers at Manna, and as such do not put a time limit upon attendance. However, the plan is reviewed regularly to ensure the Project continues to be a positive support for the Volunteer, as well as the Manna community.
If you feel either yourself or someone you know or support would benefit from attendance to Manna then please drop us an email to discuss a referral at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Events and Activity Days
We recognise that Manna is a valuable resource to groups either on a regular basis, or in the form of one off activity days. As such, we offer planned events for your group which give exclusive use of the Project for the day. For example, we have a partnership with a local charity who support single parent families, who attend Manna for a summer activity day, as well as other events during the year. These days are for a group of up to 30 children and adults, and involve active and creative activities for the families who benefit from the therapeutic and safe environment that Manna offers. If you are interested in discussing an idea or event then we are flexible and always open to new ideas or opportunities to use Manna to help others, so please contact us by emailing email@example.com.
