- After and before-school tutoring

All Acorn staff and volunteers have completed their Working with Children Check and are passionate about providing a safe and comfortable space for everyone.
We believe that everyone has value and that by investing in each other, the rewards are far greater than money.
As a not-for-profit social enterprise, any profit the Acorn generates is invested back into community development projects.
One of these projects provides paid work experience and training for people who may struggle with long-term unemployment or find it difficult to return to the workforce.
We’d love you to help support these projects by buying your next coffee or meal from us!
A prominent feature of the Acorn is our Communi-Tree notice board. Simply attach your need/request or community notice to the Communi-Tree and wait to see if someone in our growing community can help or participate.
You can include any contact details you like or ask one of our trained staff to help keep your request anonymous. You can even email or privately message us on Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat so we can advertise for you. It’s all free!
