Lead by a couple of key, salaried employees, the Ark team is made up of individuals and businesses from all walks of life who support the Ark in any way they can either by donating their time, expertise or financial support.

We also offer our clients activity sessions, to improve their skills and enrich their lives - anything from cookery to calligraphy! If anyone has a skill they would like to pass on to our clients in regular sessions at the Ark we would very much like to hear from you.

We are always looking for people to join us, whether in the shop or at the centre, cooking meals, making cups of tea and offering emotional support. 

Without the support of local businesses, churches, schools and community groups, The Ark wouldn’t be where it is today. Our friends are listed here



The Ark's team of trustees are dedicated to better supporting the homeless and vulnerable in our community.


Without our Volunteers the Ark would cease to exist. Whatever your skills or interests, we have a job for you!
