What We Do

A fresh start in your new home

Fresh Rooms

Being given the keys for a new tenancy after being homeless can seem like a dream come true.

But sometimes the dream can fade at the first sight of a flat with stained, tired walls in need of a freshen up.

This is where Fresh Start’s 'Fresh Rooms’ painting and decorating service can help. Our Fresh Rooms service is made up of teams of volunteers who can decorate up to two rooms in a tenant’s new home. We take a dignified approach to this, working alongside the tenant picking the colours and choosing how they want their new home to look. We provide the paint and the enthusiasm, and give transform tired tenancies into lovely new homes.

We also have the option of a ‘remote Fresh Rooms service’, where we provide the paint and materials to allow a tenant to carry out the work themselves to their new home.

This service is available to people who have recently moved into their new Council or Housing Association tenancy and referrals should be made via a Housing Officer or Support Worker.
