Volunteers receiving instructionWHAT WE DO AT BAILEY'S FRAMES

Baileys Frames was set up in 2006 with the support of the Community Employment Services , Dorset HealthCare University Foundation Trust and . The Richmond Fellowship. In 2014 ownership was transferred to the charity Water Lily Project.

We provide a community service to people who, for example, have been long term unemployed and wish to rebuild their confidence and other work skills to help them return to work. Skills which include:

  • Interpersonal skills through interacting with other people.
  • To work cooperatively as part of a group or team.
  • Self-discipline to come into work at given times and to meet deadlines to complete the tasks they are charged with.
  • Following instructions given to them by senior team members
  • Focusing and concentrating on the tasks given to them
  • Taking responsibility for their own work. To check, correct and take responsibility for their own mistakes when needed.

We form part of Bailey’s, a community resource centre in Barrack Road Christchurch. The premises are provided by Dorset County Council and run by The Water Lily Project in conjunction with The Richmond Fellowship.

Some of the services provided within Bailey’s include art groups, internet access and an online training centre. We also have a café which is open to the public.

Baileys Picture Frames is situated at the rear of Baileys Cafe where we have a large workshop fully equipped with all the tools and machinery needed to produce high quality bespoke hand-made frames.

All our volunteers are fully trained over a period of months and their work supervised at all times by staff who are themselves experienced Picture Framers and Joiners.

All our volunteers are fully trained and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail.

We provide the following services onsite:-

• Bespoke framing for pictures, photos, tapestries, posters, sports kit
