Beyond RECOVER

on 12 February 2016

Its now three years since we started to set up the workshop and have been reporting directly to the Commissioner’s that have funded us and our

Trustee’s on a quarterly basis.

The reports are evidence based statistics that provide much detailed information, here are some that may be of interest to you:-

  • 650+ volunteering hours per month
  • 26+ moved on to full-time sustainable employment
  • 54 Nationally recognised accredited qualifications
  • 70+ volunteers have acquired up to 30 work related skills each
  • Every week we rescue on average over one tonne of furniture from going to landfill sites

 

These facts and figures demonstrate our positive impact and we would like to take this opportunity to support the onward journey of a few of our

Team…

Spotlight on Mel

Mel volunteers twice a week and has developed a love for the furniture we up-cycle. Along with new found confidence, self-esteem and feelings of self worth she has just started her own Facebook Business page. If she continues on this path we are certain this will soon be another exciting new business.
