If you want to make a difference by providing your time and experience this is for you, On the tools have teamed up with Rebuilt4U to transform lives in the UK’s most deprived areas. If you think you can help please message the Facebook page.
The first Rebuilt4U project has begun in the UK’s most deprived area – Jaywick, Essex. It’s a seaside village that’s also dubbed “The UK’S Shanti Town”. With buildings struggling to stand and no heating or insulation, conditions are quite extreme and the level of unemployment is above average. We are desperate for multi tradesmen who can offer a few days of their time to help us get the house ready so a person in need can call it home.
Life can be a struggle and sometimes you just need a helping hand. That’s where Rebuilt4U come in. We believe in empowering communities to improve their own situations. We are proud of the values we have, we’re passionate about the things we do, and we are committed to the communities and people we work with. Our social enterprise want to tackle three big issues:
- Environmental issues
Every 14 minutes a person/family are made homeless, and every year there are more than 50,000 households classed as homeless. That’s a staggering figure in a country full of empty properties. Rebuilt4U renovate dilapidated houses and provide homes for those in need. We work with fantastic companies who donate materials and individuals (skilled & unskilled) to complete our projects. Our aim is use reclaimed, upcycled and surplus materials to help reduce landfill waste. Ultimately, rejuvenating housing that is affordable and accessible for a community is our top priority. As a community interest company, we ensure profits are invested back into the community, ensuring more properties can be renovated.
Rebuilt4U was founded by Daniel Hill, a successful entrepreneur. Daniel makes regular TV appearances on shows such as Channel 4’s Ultimate Dealers and SuperScrimpers, BBC’s 24 Hours in the Past, and most recently the hit Dave show Storage Hunters UK. This wheeler dealer will turn his hand to anything, but his passion is to help others.
