Verve Community CIC has relocated to Spinners Mill in Leigh, Greater Manchester, and established the Spinners Tea Room with a 1920s theme, paying homage to the mill’s early beginnings and a simpler time.

The tea room is the hub of Verve Community CIC and its knitted donations. These donations provide local mums and their supporters with access to knitted baby clothes, toys, and blankets at no cost. Moreover, the tea room is home to Verve Recruitment, which recruits foster carers and armed forces veterans for not-for-profit organisations that provide alternative education, mentoring, and support to local veterans in need.

The hub also houses Spotlite technology, which is partnered with CDD services and SafeGuarden CIC. Spotlite provides faster, safer, and cheaper DBS/RTW checks for the not-for-profit sector. It is also the mainframe behind the recently launched SafeGuarden Volunteers.

For the last six years, Verve Community CIC has been working remotely, and throughout the pandemic, we have never stopped. Now, we have a place to gather over a cup of tea, homemade cake, and good company and continue to collaborate to bring about change.
