Who we are

Our community is made up of people from babies to 90 year olds who come from all over the city and from all walks of life and who bring with them a whole raft of stories and experiences. We're pretty real about life - both its ups and downs - we celebrate the ups, and share in the downs. New people are always welcome, and we hope you will find a "home" with us!
