Out of the Woodwork

by admin on 23 July 2015

FB Logo Profile Pic (2)SIFA Fireside’s new social enterprise ‘Out of the woodwork’ is up and running!

Clients are learning furniture renovation and upcycling skills over a 12 week work placement with us. The furniture is donated by our supporters then the clients are trained on how to repair any damage and turn it into refreshed and colourful items. These will then be sold on our website www.outofthewoodwork.org (coming soon!)

This project is the ideal stepping stone back to work for our clients, (some of whom have been unemployed for up to 10 years), as they will receive a certificate and a reference as well as training in teamwork, time keeping and communication.  Unlike other work placements our clients will receive continued support from SIFA Fireside’s ‘Drop in’ staff alongside this project; making the transition smoother.hh

If you can spare some time to volunteer with us on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday please email Gosha on ootwoodwork@sifafireside.co.uk – no furniture skills necessary! Please also think of us if you have some furniture to donate; you can email the above or tweet us @ootwoodwork
