The Learning Centre
Jobs can be hard to come by and so can the skills required to get one. This is where we can help. We offer careers advice, computer course, functional skills training (English, maths and ICT), help with CVs and interview techniques. Old or young all are welcome.

Life at The Vine
Our shop at the Shepway parade is called 'Life at The Vine'. That is because it is more than just a shop. As well as selling donated household goods, clothes and toys at low prices it is also a place to meet some of our community workers and other members of our team, enjoy a cup of tea and find another branch of our family ready to welcome you.
Open Monday - Friday, 9.30-12.30
If you have an urgent need for furnishings, housing goods, or food please contact our shop team 07724473796.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays at our Northumberland Road centre we run a rather jolly café. It serves everything from fried eggs and bacon to steaming cups of tea and cakes.
Our community workers are there to help and advise those that need it.
There is a large play area for our preschool café customers. This has slides, cars, colouring and craft. If they stay till lunch, it's on us!
All our food and drink is at cost prices.
