Our #MillsideHero of 2021 is awarded to Stef, our amazing Youth Engagement Officer who worked tirelessly and with so much passion and dedication to organise and deliver fun, relevant and engaging sessions for our youth from outdoor sports activities, trips to Yorkshire Dales and taking them out to the cinema, bowling and ice-skating too. She accomplished all this while doing a full time Master’s degree in Drama Therapy and juggling so many other responsibilities and has been a real beacon of light and positivity for those who needed it most. We are sad to announce that this project has ended, but we organised a lovely Christmas party to celebrate all that Stef and our volunteer Nathan achieved in the last 18 months and want to honour Stef for all her hard work and wish her all the best in her future endeavours. We have no doubt that her future ahead will be bright.

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.

Rohingya ESOL class

We are so pleased to be working in partnership with AROUK, the Rohingya organisation based in Bradford supporting Rohingya refugees. Did you know that Bradford has one of the largest Rohingya communities in Europe? Many of them came to Bradford as part of the Resettlement project through UNHCR and Home Office to give them a new chance and sense of dignity back and over the last 10 years, they have become an established group in the city of Bradford.

Our Welcome Café recently opened up again to the public and we are now welcoming customers for a sit-down lunch as well as offering takeaway options too. We are thrilled to have a new cohort of students on the course who are so keen to learn catering skills and serve old and new customers.
