The Sycamore Tree is a social enterprise run by Scots Uniting Church. Scots provides our building and financial assistance in running the cafe.
Established in 1986 it has been operating for over 30 years.
Empowering volunteers and giving them the skills to enter the workforce and the community is embedded in the Sycamore Tree Mission Statement.
Volunteers from within the church congregation and from the broader community have grown in confidence and belief, been empowered by practical job skills, often moved onto paid employment and felt respected, supported and encouraged by fellow members of the volunteer team.
Sourcing our ingredients from the local area ensures our prosperity feeds into our communities prosperity. The Sycamore Tree strives to minimise its carbon footprint, dealing with local companies wherever feasible.
