Get Involved

The Northfield Centre and Stepping Stones Café is managed by a social enterprise and all takings are ploughed back in to the running costs and towards the delivery of activities and opportunities for local people.

We are committed to working with local people to improve quality of life. We have a small staff team and offer work placements and volunteering opportunities.


We depend on volunteers to carry out a variety of tasks at the Northfield Centre.

All of the volunteering opportunities come with full training and an allowance for travel expenses. You can give us as much or as little time as you have to spare.

10 week work placements for a part or full day per week may also be available with opportunities for feedback and review to make sure all is going well for you.

All volunteers have the opportunity to take a qualification and get employability support if required.

  • Training and new skills
  • The opportunity to make a difference
  • Worthwhile work experience to add to your CV
  • Confidence
  • New friends
