THE FOOTPRINTS PROJECT
LIFE WORKS: Offering volunteering and personal development opportunities for all, to improve confidence & self-esteem and build better communities.
What is Life Works? Life Works was set up in 2013 by Parkstone United Reformed Church, Poole to give volunteering opportunities to ex-offenders. It is now partnered with The Footprints Project. Volunteers are able to gain skills in painting, decorating, gardening and grounds work, up-cycling furniture as well as a bicycle repair.
Life Works now takes volunteers from the wider community who may benefit from belonging to a group and are looking to get some structure into their day. Life Works takes a ground up approach with peer mentoring. It offers the chance to give, and gain employability and life skills, as well as build confidence and self-esteem, giving a sense of purpose and meaning to lives. Life Works is based in Poole. Volunteers are fed and watered and their travel expenses are covered.
Funding from the Peoples Project has enabled us to get a van, and equipment. Local people voted for us! Watching this link will really show you how Lifeworks is changing lives and helping other charities at the same time. More.....
Can you make a difference? Life Works needs funding to provide our volunteers with equipment and tools. Regular giving and/or one off donations are vital to helping us maintain this support. Donations of equipment and tools are also welcomed.A newspaper article about Life Works
