Last week, a family of four were supported to move-on from temporary accommodation into a new house in Brinnington. The family received support from H3 volunteers to move their belongings, using the H3 Van, and to paint and decorate their new home. Using vouchers from Stockport Homes to purchase paint and carpets, H3 supplied the volunteers with equipment and supervision. From a bare and run-down property, the team created a hive of activity and transformed the space into a home, to the family's specifications.
The family are now settled in and would like to thank the volunteers for their support. H3 volunteers, also residents at temporary accommodation donated their time and efforts to support the family and to develop old and new skills. Among our volunteers we have residents who have worked at carpenters and painter/decorators - this volunteering activity was an opportunity to re-hone those skills and re-gain working practise.
If you would like to volunteer, or have domestic painting and decorating work to contract out please do get in touch.
