How do we help? We deliver for People, Planet & Profit.

 

  • PEOPLE: We empower people through training and work experience so that they can transform their lives through design and craftsmanship. 
  • PLANET: We make our furniture and fit-outs from waste materials or sustainably-sourced new material, diverting waste from landfill. 
  • PROFIT: We give away a third of our distributable reserves to the community in the form of free building and training services.
