Imagine moving into your new tenancy, then realising that you don't have a cooker to make your dinner, no washing machine to have clean clothes to visit friends and family and no fridge to store a pint of milk to make a hot drink on a cold night. This concept is all too real for our service users throughout the whole year.
At the turn of every corner, you see advertisements for tasty treats, ideas of what to cook for dinner and messages of healthy living. The lack of amenity to carry out these activities is felt by too many of our service users.
At Fresh Start, we want to make all these messages of healthy living and living well a reality for those who have been homeless and provide them with a brand new cooker, washing machine or fridge freezer. Any small donation is welcome and will help to make a real difference to a person's life.
Applications can be made all year round and we accept self-referrals or referrals from support organisations for this service.
