In the winter months we help out at the various local night shelters. The season for this has now ended.
Please let us know if you are interested in helping with ReStart in the intervening months:

The ReStart Charity ( are looking to start a two tier mentoring initiative. This is what they told us:

We are initially looking for volunteers who are interested in becoming either a mentor or a befriender. Both will have very similar training and supervision, although mentoring will be a six-month commitment and the onus on meeting the mentee would be very much up to both parties. For the "befriending" option, the commitment would look more like one or two months, with meetings with the mentee restricted to Saturdays at the Drop-in. At this stage, we are interested in getting an idea of numbers, anyone that is keen on finding out more. We will be writing to everyone that registers an interest soon. Please email directly (mentioning that you have come through the Oratory) at

All those aged 18-35 are welcome to attend
