Be a Volunteer! Network Centre volunteers are dedicated, hardworking and enjoy the array of interesting activities available for them to get involved in. Some work as few as a couple of days a month, others work several days a week, but all of them find it very rewarding.
Our volunteers each bring with them their own special talents, as well as learning new skills they can use in their own lives outside the Centre. Marketing, web design, adult education, purchasing, event management and catering are just a few of the things our volunteers get up to.
In return, MNC gives our volunteers the opportunity to earn qualifications and experience through Adult Education courses- at no cost! Between them, they have taken classes including ECDL, First Aid, Food Hygiene, Level Two Literacy and Numeracy, Welcome Host and Moving on with Computers. These skills will go with them for the rest of their lives. The Network Centre is truly grateful to our volunteers for all the time they give up for us.
We welcome all enquiries about becoming one of our special volunteers. Learn to do something new, gain a qualification, share your talent or just meet and work with great people.
Call and talk to Paul Stewart, MNC’s manager, or ask for a volunteer!
Have you thought of leaving a legacy to Millom Network Centre charity for the benefit of the community? Would you like to help those in need with education, training, finding employment or with life skills and general wellbeing support? Your legacy gift can be inheritance-tax free and easy to organise. Our Charity is looking for legacy donations - e.g. property, money, office/meeting room furniture, skills training equipment, a van and other items that would enable continued and further services at our Salthouse Road facility, MNC Unit 3 industrial unit site and with starting providing residential accommodation services.
Charitable legacies reduce the total amount of inheritance tax due from the estate. Legacies are left through the donor's will or simply by a declaration to the executors with instructions as to how and to which charity a legacy is to be distributed.
MNC would benefit from any donations and legacies left in wills to ensure the sustainable future of this charity for the benefit of the local community. Any money you leave to charity is exempt from inheritance tax reducing the amount of tax payable on your estate (Charity Aid Foundation) The Charity Aid Foundation can provide you with suggested clauses for your solicitor to include in your will.
"Leaving a gift to charity in your will is an amazing way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime. We (CAF) can make arranging a charitable legacy easy and flexible."
Every pound donated to MNC makes a real difference to what we can achieve. You can choose to support a specific project or make a donation towards our overall work. You can make a one off donation, a periodic donation, or a Legacy Gift.

Millom Network Centre Ltd relies on income from its services, grant funding and training/education contract work and from charitable funding to continue to provide services for those in need in the local area.
The Centre continues to develop its business interests with the aim of being financially self reliant in the future.
Millom Network Centre is a registered charity - charity number 1117218 and is registered at Companies House - number 05591920.
Our mission is to support the sustainable regeneration of the local area through the provision of life long learning opportunities and the development of a local enterprise culture.
The Centre opened in 2006 and has become an invaluable hub of much needed activity for the local area that is helping to change lives on a daily basis. The Centre works hard to generate its own income and has support from many members of the community who volunteer their expertise and time e.g. directorship, operational tasks, teaching and providing basic skills support. It is with thanks to our volunteers that we provide one to one support in life skills, numeracy, literacy and IT.
The Centre provides many services free of charge for those in most need. The Centre has received support from funders which is often related to outputs in training, education, starting social enterprises and helping with employment and business start up.
However, funds are often for a limited period and the Centre is grateful for ongoing support and investment. The Centre aims to be self financing and hopes to increase its assets, reserves and profitable services as a means of achieving this. If you can help or know people who can, we would love to hear from you.
