Allocated - MITIE Care and Custody

Community Cafe Redecoration Project

SDCVS Project Reference PRJ-23-0301

This is a community café operated by the Salvation Army (Swadlincote) to provide a safe and warm space to community residents. They are looking for support of volunteers with redecorating and refreshing their community café after recent building works.

The project will comprise of preparing surfaces for painting, painting the walls and ceilings of the main café area, corridor and toilet and cleaning when complete.

Materials and equipment will be provided (for example paint, rollers, brushes, trays etc), however, the volunteers will be responsible for providing their own PPE and ensuring they are dressed appropriately and are wearing suitable footwear.

Please note, there is the need to use a step ladder to enable the painting of the ceilings. To ensure the health and safety of the volunteers they have asked that the organisation provides their own step ladder(s).

”I'm amazed at how easy it was to set up and how smoothly it went.  I'm totally impressed at the willingness and commitment of the volunteers, and at the work they completed.  This was such a good experience - it can be hard for us to find volunteers, and hard to find the time (and expertise!) to take on tasks like this, so it was very much appreciated.  We have a nice, fresh-looking cafe again! It was looking a little tired, and the damp proofing work did not look good.  The cafe will now be lovely again for people to spend time in.” Salvation Army (Swadlincote)
