Whitefoot Community News
Community is not a physical thing; it is something we all hold in our hearts. Community is first and foremost a feeling - a sense of acceptance, of belonging and feeling welcome and included. It is knowing that if someone needs help, support or a listening ear or an audience, the people who feel part of that community and are willing, provide what is needed. The centre is just that, the place that facilitates and makes welcome. We all add to it, and benefit from what we put into it.
Your COmmunity needs you
Charities across Whitefoot are in search of volunteer support and, in return, you'll get relevant experience for your CV and that wonderful feeling that comes from giving something back.
