...positive opportunities for wellbeing, empowerment and recreation...
PASTEL is a social enterprise set up by carers, in 2005, with the social aim of
encouraging and supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged adults, young adults, carers and their families
to make the most of their lives – providing a range of weekday, evening and weekend opportunities

Apart from a few sessional workers, all the directors and members of the PASTEL Management Committee
are volunteeers. And, all activities are heavily supported by volunteers.
PASTEL generates over 2,500 volunteer hours for the community each year.
