A new registered charity for South Essex working to change lives by helping to relieve unemployment and poverty

New Life Wood – Supported by local churches, we will be providing work placement opportunities in the communities for people who find it difficult to access the job market and often fall into poverty, especially those with a past history of offending; mental health problems and, if possible, others who struggle to gain employment because of past problems.

Through this work experience in our not for profit wood recycling project we will offer them training, mentoring and life/employment skills as well as day to day money management support and guidance.

Making a box in less than 30 seconds...Paolo giving a demo of how we make our storage crates. They're assembled using only workshop off-cuts of recalimed scaffold boards, joists and floor boards - that's double recycling! Available in our shop.
