NEW IT COURSES STARTING IN JULY
What is NewStarts?
NewStarts is a christian community project, located next to Bromsgrove’s most multi-deprived area, Charford. We provide practical help to people on very low incomes and others in financial crisis, especially recently homeless people, so that they can make a fresh start in a new home. Our core activities are collecting unwanted re-usable furniture, providing free household goods to people in genuine need, an emergency ‘food bank’ and opportunities for long term unemployed people to gain work experience.
The Project has four main areas of concern:
- Furnishing a home: we collect donated good quality furniture and much of it is given to vulnerable individuals and families setting up a home.
- Selling good quality affordable furniture. This enables people on benefits to buy goods which are usually expensive such as freezers and washing machines. All profit goes back into the project.
- Food: NewStarts provides emergency food for those in dire need.
- Volunteering and work placement opportunities: NewStarts gives people the opportunity to develop skills in a work environment which will help them to gain employment.
