Five years ago on 25th February 2017, the Millside Centre opened its doors to the public. We are so blessed and privileged to still be here five years on, continuing to serve the needs of the most vulnerable and to offer activities, sessions and projects that give people hope so they can improve their lives for good. It is a real honour to be a place of sanctuary for many in our city and to celebrate this milestone; we are launching a few fundraising plans in the coming months.

We are looking for someone to take on the role of Millside Centre Host, welcoming our partners and service users during evenings and at weekends.

There are a number of groups interested in hiring our rooms for training, workshops and meetings outside normal working hours, so we are seeking a self-motivated person who is friendly, enthusiastic and dependable, and who would be willing to be trained to use our facilities and assist clients.

We are thrilled to be working in partnership with The Cellar Trust to delivery a peer support group for people who access Millside Centre and the wider community. Peer Support groups are a welcoming and supportive group where people with lived experience of mental distress come together to help and support each other.

The purpose of the group will be:

  • to provide a safe and confidential space to talk
  • promote self-care, growth and resilience
  • discuss, expand and improve our coping strategies

The next group will start on Tuesday 2nd November, 1:00pm-3:00pm here at Millside. To find out more, sign up or refer a client please call 01274 409661 or email:

It is our great pleasure to announce that we are relaunching our Welcome Café as part of Refugee Week. After months of our café being closed during lockdown, we have managed to recruit a new cohort of students who are keen to learn both theory and practical catering skills, having the opportunity of bringing in recipes from their countries to cook and sell to the public.

We are thrilled to announce that we recently got some funding from CNET’s Mental Health Grant to start a befriending programme. Over the past year, we have noticed that many of our service users have suffered in silence, directly or indirectly affected by covid19 pandemic; many are on long waiting lists for mental health support but are simply desperate for connection and someone to listen to them.

The Millside Centre is slowly opening to provide vital support for vulnerable people during the covid19 pandemic, with a hybrid of online and face-to-face services. Please click here for the list of services that are resuming or continuing to run following government guidelines and restrictions to ensure the safety of our staff, partners and volunteers.
