The Guild is made stronger by working partnerships with other charities and community organisations. Partnership Projects are funded by application to external funding which provide one to one support in specialist areas such as debt, benefits and mental health.


We don't fundraise but greatly appreciate donations to support the work that we do.




We work with several organisations that are always looking for new volunteers. If you want to give back to the local community, please get in touch with us today.
