The Helping Hands Project is run by Fresh Start, a charity helping over 2000 people a year who have been homeless make a home for themselves and resettle back into their community. The Project has been set up together with Castlerock Edinvar Housing Association, and is based in Craigmillar.
Volunteers are central to Helping Hands, and we want to involve around 90 volunteers to deliver cooking classes, gardening sessions at our Community Growing Space, and be part of our Hit Squads who provide a decorating service for our Clients.
We want to get local people involved in the Project, so if you live in the area and would like to gain new skills and qualifications, get active, and meet new people, we want to hear from you. To become a volunteer, you don’t need experience, just a lot of enthusiasm to help someone feel part of their community again.
