The Avalon Drop-In

Everyone is welcome

Every Monday, Avalon opens its doors to everyone between 9am til 4pm.

Avalon has run the Drop-In programme since it opened in 1987. It provides an opportunity to relax in a warm and welcoming environment, have a cuppa, meet new friends or catch up with old ones. Everyone is welcome!!!

Every month, Avalon hosts a ‘Makeover day’ when a trained hairdresser, comes along to offer free haircuts to anyone who wants it. There is also the opportunity on these days to have make-up and nails done and also to choose a new wardrobe if you so desire!

Other groups that we have offered include cooking, art, craft, gardening and jewellery making.

If you would like to run a workshop (as a one off or regular event) at the Avalon Drop-In please contact the centre and we’ll be pleased to discuss the options with you.


Opportunities include: 

  • Chatting to our visitors
  • Assisting them with activities (art, craft, gardening)
  • Administration duties
  • Cooking/cleaning

Donating to Avalon means you are supporting a small charity that is run solely by volunteers and donations. Your support will help keep our buses on the road, provide warmth to the homeless, and offer opportunities to people with disabilities. In short, you will be making a difference to people’s lives and providing hope and happiness to many.
