Description

The aim of MAXcrafts is to benefit the local community and support the continued running of the MAXwell Centre through the production and sale of craft items. These items will be made by volunteers and craft group participants at the centre from materials that will be upcycled, recycled, donated, or come from the centre’s garden.

Do you have a passion for arts and crafts? We are looking for volunteers who are able to run monthly workshops and support weekly groups in a range of crafts. The group will consist of a variety of ages of people with various health needs and different levels of creative ability.

MAXcrafts is a developing social enterprise within The MAXwell Centre, a community centre in the heart of Coldside. The MAXwell Centre provides a wide range of information services and support, groups and classes, as well as a community garden.

Organisation aims and objectives

We are committed to improving the quality of life for the local community and to combatting social exclusion, poverty, disadvantage, and discrimination. The centre provides a welcoming and supportive environment in which individuals can learn valuable skills and access essential information. We work with community members to ensure that they are actively involved in the development and provision of services to meet their changing needs.
