Become a volunteer

Are you looking to help your community? Why not join us as a volunteer. We are always looking for help in the centre and on our meals on wheels deliveries.


We offer membership for regular users of the centre which means savings on the cost of meals and in our hairdressing salon.

The Fair Close Centre is an important community facility for the town and also for many Sovereign residents and we support this exciting initiative.
