Projects
At the Daventry Volunteer Centre we currently operate projects which provide services to the local community:


New St Cafe
The New st cafe project, in partnership with Cummins Engineering is helping to provide a cafe environment for older people. The project aims to provide social activities as well as home cooked food, to help reduce loneliness and improve the health & wellbeing of older people.

A team of volunteers help in the kitchen with cooking breakfast food and monthly hot lunches.

Our cafe is open week day mornings : 9.30 - 12pm

For more information about the project please contact us


Happy at Home Partnership
Lottery Funded

The Happy at Home Partnership which is a Big Lottery Funded project helping reduce the feelings of isolation in elderly residents across Daventry and South Northants Districts, and enabling them to remain living independently in their own homes. Volunteers are recruited to visit elderly residents in their own homes and take them information about access to services in their local area.

The project also recruits volunteers for its social events which bring isolated elderly residents together with the local service providers.

For more information about the project or if you wish to volunteer please email Nicola

Daventry Clean & Green Project

Daventry Clean & Green Project

The Daventry Clean & Green project, in partnership with DDC Environmental Health, is a part-time project focussing on increasing the number of people who want to volunteer to get involved with environmental issues across the district.

Angie recruits new volunteers, supports existing community volunteers, and promotes the project organising community clean-ups, litter picks and other environmental improvement initiatives. For more information about the project or to volunteer please call Angie 01327 300614


Daventry District TimeBank

Daventry District Time Bank project is a community mutual help scheme using the sharing and exchanging of volunteer skills. Volunteers are rewarded with “credits” for donated skills, e.g. dog walking, babysitting, book keeping, DIY etc. which they can use for themselves, or donate back to the Time Bank for others who need them.

This project is innovative in that it has proved to be highly successful in recruiting volunteers from marginalised groups, and those not usually involved in volunteering.
