About this project

Changing to a greener future one van at a time. 

As our services are more needed than ever, we want to do our bit to use sustainable and renewable energy while serving our community by changing our fleet to electric vans. This will enable us to help even more people by providing furniture, clothing, food and other essentials Free of Charge to the most vulnerable and marginalised people in our immediate society. 

With a low emission zone already in effect and fully enforced by June 2024, an electric vehicle will enable us to still serve the whole city.

‘Sharp Response’ provides a daily mobile crisis outreach service targeted to those alcohol/drug users deemed to be at highest risk. The service goes to the individual wherever they are, rather than waiting for the individual to come to the service and so we are requesting funds for an electric car to make our service more sustainable.

We wish to install a self composting toilet at Grove Nursery for all nursery users. This toilet means that older people, children, people with mobility issues and people with specific conditions will be able to use the site as currently there is no toilet provision at all.
