To achieve our vision of a vibrant community hub for people to be, we have the following:-

Customers  - YOU, 

Volunteers/Peer Mentors - valuable members of the team who give their time freely to ensure the Edge remains a vital community resource, sharing their own experiences of their journey in addiction, or struggles with their mental health, offering a friendly face and a listening ear to those who require it.

Staff - Salaried staff who manage The Edge - Sarah - Cafe Manager, Gail - Senior Recovery Coordinator, Lisa - Recovery Coordinator, Jacob - Assistant Cafe Manager, Haize, Joe, and Rebecca - Cafe Staff

Closer Board - a mix of staff, volunteers, local community and partners who meet monthly and have input into the day-to-day running of the cafe - should we have a BBQ? is there more we can do? are we making the most of what we have etc.

Directors - volunteer directors who guide The Edge:-

  • Tom Jefford - Business Strategy
  • Susie Talbot - Operational Management
  • Geoff Thornley - Finances and IT
