Before Christmas, we asked our volunteers and young adults on work placements, “What would you like Remake to do for the community in 2021?”.
Remake changed my life. Before starting to work here, I hadn’t had a job for more than six months and had little hope of ever getting one (especially a job that I enjoyed).
My journey with Remake began in September 2018. When applying for the job I had no idea what to expect. All I knew was Remake was a charity with the aim of stopping usable “stuff” from entering landfill – stuff that could have a new life.
Remake supports young adults to be workready for the reuse sector by working with local partners, national funders and statutory agencies.
As we get ready to open up again, Gemma tells us how volunteering at Remake has helped her meet new people and learn new things.
