Meet The Garden House Team
Everything that you see at The Garden House is made possible by the hard work and dedication of our amazing team of volunteers, many of whom have lived experience of the every day challenges facing groups we support.
Day to day tasks for our volunteers include running the Riverside Cafe, caring for our animals, gardening and horticulture, site maintenance, building and construction, working on our many community projects and welcoming visitors and groups to The Garden House.
Our work is supported by Site Manager Kevin Swindells, Chief Executive, Hannah Hodgson and our small group of Trustees and committee members who meet regularly.
If you have relevant experience and skills you could support our team with, or want to find out more, please contact us by email at:
Volunteer vacancies will be posted here and on the Stockport Volunteer Hub.
Some of our volunteers are able to complete work based qualifications alongside their work at The Garden House, with a wealth of opportunity to gain hands on experience.
We provide access to training in first aid and food hygiene, and for volunteers to learn how to run a cafe, serve customers food and drink and handle cash.
Our Co-op Volunteers
We are so thankful for the Co-op and their volunteers who support us with food donations via the Fair Share scheme, and team volunteering days. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaaGICDzSKg&t=11s&ab_channel=TheGardenHouseMarple
