The Story So Far


 

The WOOOF Project has been devised as a result of discussion with our participants and volunteers over the last two years.  We have identified that many unemployed people, of all ages, who experience physical and mental health conditions find it very difficult to gain sustainable employment because they either don't have the expeirence required or their health condition makes it impossible to attend work on a regular basis which impacts on employers.  

 

This exciting and innovative project counteracts these issues and combines several strands of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act (2015) to provide:

 

  • ·meaningful activities for volunteers aged 16+ who may be experiencing physical or mental health issues, learning disabilities or other medical conditions that prevent them obtaining sustainable employment
  • a supported working environment
  • opportunities to learn new skills
  • work relevant training and accredited training
  • opportunities to increase confidence
  • opportunities to reduce isolation and increase socialising
  • opportunities for individuals who wish to progress into employment with less dependence on benefits
  • opportunities to generate income for a local community charity
  • the potential to offer paid part-time employment
  • a reduction in waste going to landfill, helping to address environmental issues
  • a reduction in the carbon footprint
  • encouragement and an increase in recycling among residents of Bridgend

 

Tasks include:

 

  • Distribution and collection of donation bags across the Bridgend borough
  • Sorting of donations (based at the unit)
  • Preparation of materials to recycle/sell (e.g. removing buttons and zips)
  • Cataloguing items for sale on the internet
  • Photographing items for sale on the internet
  • Listing/advertising items for sale on to the internet
  • Packing & posting items sold
  • Manufacturing pet and garden products from 100% recycled products

 

We have set stringent targets for ourselves, aiming to divert 150 tons of waste from landfill each year, turning 100% of that into useful saleable products and sharing our vision with the wider community to support the mantra of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle for the benefit of everyone.
