Celebrating its first anniversary, Swindon Restore is growing strong, training volunteers and seeing them placed in employment.
Swindon Restore has now been open for 1 year and in that time we have seen a lot of volunteers come through our doors. So far out of 115 volunteers we have been able to help at least 8 get back into employment with new skills or a reference! It has been sad to lose them but we know they will make a difference where they are.
In the meantime we continue to train our volunteers with the aim of providing them with skills that could help them in future employment, as well as in daily life.
As well as our volunteer training work, we have delivered to over 370 households in Swindon and the workshop has been busy creating, repairing and restoring furniture. There is always plenty going on, and continued need for more volunteers!
