Fresh Start Scotland
About Fresh Start Scotland
Fresh Start focuses on homelessness & poverty prevention, tackling the cycle of repeat homelessness & social isolation while supporting people in the transition period. 'Starter Packs' provide household goods to people moving into their tenancy. 'Hit Squads' paint new flats making them homely. It's Fresh Start's Community Hub that offers services worthy of the Community Action Award- cooking classes, community meals, a food pantry & thrift shop prioritizing dignity and choice all operate alongside advice & upskilling initiatives including digital help, access to training, supported volunteering into employment and signposting to organisations who often use the Hub to share their services.
The People's Choice Award is sponsored by SCVO Credit Union
