About the Project
Marginalised individuals are at risk of falling in to poverty, re-offending, and becoming more isolated. New Life Wood will give them a chance to rebuild their lives, gain confidence, make new friends, and help make a difference in their community. We help support individuals gain vital experience and skills to equip them for paid employment, either directly within the charity or elsewhere.
About the Charity
New Life Wood is an inspirational new charity at the heart of the community in Southend and across South Essex. Our mission is to take lives and goods that others would discard, and provide the means to see those lives and goods renewed and become a valued part of our community. We aim to do this by means of a wood regeneration and recycling initiative - recycling lumber, reducing landfill, and restoring lives. Our impact is life changing and helps protect our environment. We help local people at a disadvantage who have been marginalised in the job market, including those with a past history of drug, alcohol, mental health issues and ex-offenders. We offer employment & volunteering opportunities, and employment support - and aim to reduce unemployment and poverty in our community.
