Starpic Project is a not-for-profit company, run by a dedicated team of workers and volunteers. The project workers are paid for the contact time, but most go above and beyond and donate additional hours every week to ensure our activities are a success for the young people.
We are thankful for our dedicated volunteers that enable our project to run smoothly, without them our activities would not be as easily flowing. They provide a great asset to the project and complete jobs such as organising, arranging social events like the Christmas party and activity weeks, supermarket bag packing and other fundraising activities.
We welcome any help you can give to volunteer and contribute to the success of the project.

The project is managed by a Board of Directors who are responsible for the development, management and overall running of the project. The board meet on a regular basis and the positions are filled by election of members and young peoples’ parents at Annual General Meeting. The founder automatically takes a position on the Board.
The Board is supported by the other non-elected volunteers who assist with the day to day running and fundraising of the project.
