What skills do I need?

Food and socialising have always gone hand in hand. But for people who live alone, without relatives or a support network nearby, mealtimes can be a lonely time of day. Ideally, we would like you to have some knowledge of mental health conditions: useful but not essential. We are looking for people that are reliable, friendly, caring, and have a friendly manner.

About Making Space

Making Space is a national charity and leading provider of adult health and social care services. We provide care and support in the community, in people’s own homes, as well as specialist residential care services for vulnerable adults and carers.

Warrington Day Centre is a space for people living with mental health conditions to socialise and to get involved in meaningful activities to help build confidence and skills to support people to achieve their goals.

On average, around 15 to 20 people go to the centre on Allen Street regularly. They get involved in various activities such as cooking groups, health and wellbeing, music, quizzes and sometimes people like to sit and chat to someone.
