We offer volunteering and work experience with a difference.

Maymessy is a ‘breathing space’, both literal and metaphorical.


We offer volunteering and work experience. We are very grateful to Henry for writing Maymessy’s social impact report 2019 and Ethan for coming on his school work experience in July 2019. Kathleen continues to support Maymessy with help in events. Please do get in touch if you want to volunteer. I am currently looking for someone to work on events at Maymessy and bring in more charities.

Much of Maymessy’s appeal lies in the charm of its location and the beauty of its surroundings overlooking the Vale of the White Horse. For adults and children, the centre will provide a “breathing space”, both literal and metaphorical. Anna Richards is a qualified life coach, and brings a reflective and positive ethos to the whole enterprise.

“I volunteered for Maymessy in 2018 as part of my Duke of Edinburgh bronze award. It is the only social enterprise of it’s kind in my area, I wanted to help young people being a young person myself. I enjoyed planting the vegetable garden as it gave me a sense of satisfaction knowing that my efforts were helping other people my age. I also feel I have benefited from volunteering at the events hosted at Maymessy to get an insight into organising charitable events.”
