Services that our charity offers


We have completed numerous renovations on both retail and domestic properties to a high standard with all of the necessary accreditations.

House Clearances

We have a retail operation in Dumbarton road linked to our house clearance and renovation business based in our Warehouse.

Vocational Training

We provide vocational based training across a range of subjects with a view to transitioning our staff into full time employment.
We believe in working together

Difference made so far

Individuals who have managed to break the cycle will use their experience to mentor and support other offenders to do the same. Operating as a social enterprise, the organisation will manufacture, recycle, and upcycle furniture and white goods and sell to the general public.

Our second shop is located on 550 Dumbarton Road, G11 6RH.
