We are encouraged that the news of Handcrafted is spreading. This week, Wannie and her fellow students visited the workshop. She goes on to explain…
“As first year medical students we were asked to write an assignment on health inequalities and the relationship between social class and health. After hearing about the work of Handcrafted is doing helping people to get back into employment and inhousing the homeless we thought they would be the perfect charity to gain insight into.
After visiting the workshop and talking to the people using the services we were blown away by how the workers go above and beyond for the vulnerable people that enter their doors. Not only does the charity practically help people learn new skills but also empowers and gives them the confidence to face their challenge. Engaging in the workshop also acts as a source of therapy for some of the men who may have struggled with mental health issues.
Handcrafted is a perfect example of how charities can help some of the most disadvantaged in society have a fresh start!”
