Experience the benefits of working together on this exciting new wood project:

Equipping and being equipped with skills to better lives which will impact our local community for good. 

How do we do this?

By combining environmental improvement with social justice.  This can be seen in saving resources by recycling and upcycling wood and through this process we seek to help people develop confidence, self-esteem and learn a range of useful transferable skills.

We are passionate about seeing lives changed and we believe we can provide a springboard for many of our volunteers to go on to achieve gainful employment to enable them to sustain a new and improved way of life……… and in the process make some life-long friends too!

We are not your standard voluntary organisation – first and foremost at Useful Wood, we regard ourselves as family, an inclusive community working alongside each other; sharing skills, experience but most importantly, our LIVES.

If this sounds like a community you’d like to join, there is plenty to get involved with; from collecting wood to preparing wood for sale, from making wooden products to working in the shop.  No experience is needed, just commitment, a small amount of regular time and a desire to be involved in something life-changing, if that’s you then please get in touch by clicking on this link and completing the form
