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
