We are a CIC based in Cornwall, covering the South West, with an aim to Rebuild Lives and Restore Empty Properties.
We empower and improve the lives of disadvantaged individuals and minority groups and their communities in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset, to help people realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to society. By directly tackling the Empty Homes Crisis our impact is potentially huge, and we are passionate about being able to achieve this.
Rebuild South West is run by Ex military personnel who have in the past battled with PTSD and other life affecting disadvantages.
Our website is www.rebuildsouthwest.co.uk and we have regular updates on FB/Twitter.
We work with young individuals who are struggling in their lives, offer them work experience, training, and essential skills over a 4 week course. They complete our courses with CSCS cards, First Aid qualifications, all their safety and protective clothing, references, and huge motivation.
Whilst these practical courses are within the construction sector, we offer a wealth of advice and hands-on experience. We cover debt management, motivation, presentation and self-worth, and a host of other issues not always addressed in a classroom based traditional learning environment.
