Many of the creative people who bring their courage and skill to the Handcrafted community have experienced rough sleeping and homelessness first hand. So, when we were invited to collaborate with Durham Winter Night Shelter in making the shelter Covid-Secure, there was a real passion to help out.
Here’s how the space was transformed by Handcrafted trainees constructing night shelter pods:
Last week Handcrafted won the award for Social Enterprise of the Year at the Homeless Link Excellence Awards. This is authentic recognition for the work that some of these guys have done throughout the year in creating a better life for themselves and others, turning derelict houses into quality homes, and now making the night shelter possible too. Nice work!
