Support Make a Difference

Volunteer, fundraise, donate

There are lots of amazing  ways that you can make a difference and support mental health kindness in our community.

Every year, we need to raise at least £45,000 to keep our doors open at the Arch Workshops.

With your help, we can continue our mission, and to grow our free mental heath support services in West Devon.

Volunteer your skills

From decorating and carpentry, to leading craft or cookery sessions, if you have a skill or professional service to offer, you can make a difference.
We're hugely grateful to the amazing DIYers and local tradespeople who donate their skilled time at the Arch workshops.

Even with the support of our wonderful volunteers, it costs over £45,000 a year to keep our lights on and doors open. Your donation, via our JustGiving page will make a difference. Every penny will help foster mental health kindness, support and friendship at the Arch and throughout the wider community.
