Background of New start Highland
The mission of New
Start Highland is to create opportunities for people facing homelessness and
crisis to experience the right support, at the right time, in the right
environment in order for them to transform their lives. Through a programme of
re-use, New Start Highland provides furniture and household items, which not
only has social implications but impacts in a positive way for the environment
by diverting these items from landfill. New Start Highland accepts donations of
furniture and household items, which are then provided to people setting up new
homes after a period of homelessness. Surplus goods are sold in the
organisations shops in Inverness, Dingwall, Thurso and Wick with profits
supporting the employability training and housing support services. Bikes
are also accepted and refurbished. In addition, donated items are re-imagined
by in-house craftspeople and sold under the Unique Ness brand, again in support
of social purpose.
The social issues
tackled by New Start Highland are three-fold; along with furniture and
household item re-use, a housing support service is in place, as well as a
programme of employability training, helping people in the community who have
barriers to employment to gain the skills to “get a job, do a job and keep a
job”. Items can be donated at any of New
Start Highland’s warehouses or shops located throughout the highlands and
donors can increase their donation by applying gift aid, which allows New Start
Highland to increase their profit up to 25% for each £1 they receive.
Highland https://newstarthighland.org/ is a dynamic charity based in Inverness with
operations across the highlands. They need to balance both for purpose and for profit
elements of their business.
