Fresh Start

Fresh Start’s key objective is to provide services which support the resettlement of people who have been homeless.

Fresh Start’s PAT service (Portable Appliance Testing) is a commercial operation that creates and funds intermediate employment placements for unemployed people who have experienced homelessness. The placements are paid roles in a real work environment: the trainees contribute to the delivery of our business and services, in return the trainees gain experience and accredited training that will help them access mainstream employment.

The commercial service has a customer base that includes social and private landlords, employers from the private and voluntary sectors, charity shops and church groups.
