Get Involved



Fresh Start works in partnership with a number of local businesses, supporting us in different ways.

You can support us in a number of ways, and we would love to welcome your team to our warehouse to show you what goes on behind the scenes at Fresh Start and how you can support our work.

Fresh Start is a great way of engaging in our services and working together as a team, not to mention the impact you will have on our service users, and you will leave feeling proud of what you have achieved. We have a number of different volunteering opportunities for our corporate partners to engage with, from days in the warehouse making up essential starter packs, to painting someone’s new home, to getting involved in our Growing Spaces gardens.  For more info on how a volunteering day in the warehouse would look for: Starter Packs and our Painting and Decorating Services, please follow the links. 

Donations of Goods
We are always in need of items for our essential starter packs, you can run a starter pack drive from the office, you can print this poster to display around the office with what items staff can donate. 

You can raise vital funds for Fresh Start through office bake sales, casual Fridays, or go big and take on a team event, such as the Kilt Walk or Edinburgh Marathon, all in aid of Fresh Start.  Check out some ideas of how you can raise vital funds here

If you are interested in taking part in any of the above, or for further information, please contact us at
