Joanna Project depends on the help we receive from our many volunteers. We call them angels.

We have Evening Outreach Angels, Garden Angels, Garage Angels, Sanctuary Angels, Secret Angels who pray. Some for a day a week, some a few hours a month. These are our current angel vacancies:


Nothing says "I care" like a homemade cake; we love to bless the women who come to Joanna House with homemade baking. To do this we need a steady supply of cakes. Drop-off points in Middleton, Chapel Allerton, Headingley and Holbeck.

Occasional or regular donations always welcome.

If you would like to help please call Joanna House or email admin@joannaproject.co.uk
