We are passionate that every individual has the opportunity to thrive.

Our Projects

Reducing isolation and loneliness by developing positive relationships and networks in the community.

Providing mentoring & creating opportunities for young people aged 11 – 25.​

The Mustard Tree needs your help.

The Mustard Tree relies on the incredible support and energy of our volunteers. Without these amazing people, we would not be able to reach and empower so many marginalised or overlooked individuals. It is their dedication and generosity that allows the Mustard Tree and its projects to do what they do. Could you be part of this team?​
