Fresh Start is an Edinburgh based charity helping people make a home for themselves. Our project delivers a range of services offering both practical and social support to help people build confidence, skills and feel more settled within their communities.
Our starter packs and hit squads help people who have been homeless establish themselves in their new home.
Our cooking and gardening services help people gain skills and confidence in an informal and friendly social setting.
Our training initiative provides people with the opportunity to gain real work experience and an SQA accredited qualification.
Our cooker delivery service can ensure people who do not have the funds available for white goods can access these.
Our PAT testing service acts as a social enterprise feeding into the work of our charity and gives some of our clients the opportunity to gain new skills and work experience.
