Meet the Team:
To enable us to carry out all our projects, we have a fantastic group of committed volunteers. As of June (2018) we have 86 volunteers from all walks of life. Some pack food boxes at the foodbank, some advise or meet and greet at the Resource Centre, some ‘chaperone’ our community outreach team – in fact pretty everything that happens, there’s a volunteer involved somewhere!
The above picture shows some of us at our launch in April 2017. We always have room for more, so why not join us? Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Henry Wilson MBE
"I am a Haverhill boy, born here and attended the local schools. As a child we struggled with poverty related issues and certainly know what it’s like growing up with debt and hardly any money!
