NewStarts is an innovative and dynamic Christian social enterprise project, based in Bromsgrove in North Worcestershire with a satellite site in New Frankley, Birmingham. We help people to overcome their challenges and disadvantages and we’re proud to do things differently in order to make a lasting impact:
- We give away c60 tonnes of free furniture every year to recently re-housed, homeless people and those facing severe financial disadvantage.
- We operate a business model which deliberately has a low ratio of paid staff (9) and a high ratio of volunteers, (50) most of whom are long term unemployed and/or challenged by mental health issues.
- We sell low-cost and second-hand household goods to the general public, including sanitised and re-installed computer hardware, at an affordable price.
- We also operate a busy food bank and provide 1:1 IT courses.
