New 2 You
**UPDATE: The New 2 You Centre has re-opened Mon-Fri 9am - 4:30pm
REMADE IN DERRY
If you have any unwanted furniture or electrical items drop them into the New 2 You Centre at Pennyburn Recycling Centre. They'll be upcycled and refurbished by unemployed and disabled people training in trade skills and are then sold at affordable prices in the New 2 You shop on site. So you're helping people re-skill while helping our environment - it's a win win!
FURNITURE RESTORATION COURSE
Interested in upcycling? Fancy learning a new skill? At New 2 You you can do a furniture restoration course. This is open to members of the public and will run for 8 weeks every Thursday afternoon from 2-4pm. There is a cost of £30 to cover materials.
We educate people who are unemployed and people with disabilities in repair and life skills equipping people for the workplace. We offer participants a personal development plan supporting them and breaking down barriers to employment. Our courses are OCN accredited and include:
- Basic Construction Skills – carpentry and painting
- Exploring a Career in Construction – Electrical skills
- Teamwork skills
- Healthy Living
- Retail skills
We also run sewing classes. Features of this class include; threading a machine, cutting and measuring fabric, straight stitching and hemming.
If you’re interested in any of our courses email [email protected] or call 02871360453.
Our vision is to create a zero waste economy, an alternative to a disposable society by making repair education accessible, to build a stronger, waste-free community and support vulnerable people within our city and district.
