Compass Project 2012 CIC
Compass Project is a Bristol-based social enterprise founded and operated entirely by people with a history of drug/alcohol dependency and offending backgrounds, which collects, renovates and recycles used furniture. It offers structured work placement programmes for volunteers, as well as a pathway to progress to paid and managerial roles alongside routes into subsequent employment or education. The Fore’s grant will enable Compass Project to triple its stock, allowing it to accept more donations and start a clearance service for large scale house and office furniture removals. In addition to creating 15 work placements, the grant will ultimately drive a significant increase in earned income, supporting Compass Project to achieve its financial objective of reduced reliance on grant funding.
