About us

John Storer Charnwood is an independent charity serving the communities of Charnwood with activities running throughout the day and evening and at weekends too.


We provide volunteering opportunities throughout John Storer House. Whether it be in the kitchen, driving people to their hospital appointments, helping with activities or greeting people at reception, you can make a difference by volunteering here.


John Storer Charnwood provides leisure and social activities both on and off-site for adults with learning disabilities and for older people.  We are committed to promoting community activity and well-being in Charnwood.  Our sessions include craft, music & movement, drama and lunch clubs.  We also have an award-winning allotment on the Mountfields site.  We provide safe, confidential spaces for people to access support services.


John Storer Charnwood has a role within the wider Voluntary and Community Sector in Charnwood.  We disseminate information and advice through regular network meetings.  We also promote volunteering for organisations throughout Charnwood and source and host training for VCS groups.


We provide fresh, high quality home-cooked food at a reasonable price in our popular café.  Choose from our range of hot meals or sandwiches along with a wide selection of cakes and drinks.  The café is also a valuable social space where people come to meet and chat.
