Our charity projects fall into three main categories.

Digital inclusion programmes; our shops as a safe environment to develop, and working with young people struggling in mainstream education.

We use the IT equipment we collect to run digital inclusion programmes aimed at hard to reach groups.

Our five retail outlets provide a safe and supportive environment for volunteers to learn new skills and reduce social isolation.

Our PEAK education project provides a practical learning environment for children struggling with mainstream education.

We also work in partnership with local community groups, housing associations and charities to develop unique programmes to help the most marginalised service users.

The Volunteer archive editions

“We had an eight year old boy and his mother in (Women’s Aid Refuge) last week. They had had to get out fast and he’d left his computer behind – the look on his face when we gave him the i-Pad was priceless.”

“What I really like is that it gets me out and about and keeps me active. It forces me to get up in the morning.”

“I would say (volunteering at) the Tip Shop has definitely changed our lives for the better”

Employability programmes for adults with learning disabilities

Individuals can gain experience in a real work environment, learning skills, gaining confidence and tackling barriers to employment.

Employability programmes

We have recently started work with Newport City Homes, helping their tenants who are unemployed gain skills in IT. We have focussed on specific skills such as searching for jobs online, how to apply for these jobs and how to create a CV.

Our social programmes are designed in partnership with the groups that we work with, enabling them to create a course tailored to their service users. We can offer regular group sessions within the community, through to individual one to one support.
