The 4Rs/New 2 You is a social enterprise supporting our local community by providing household furniture and electrical items at low, or no, cost to the most vulnerable in our society.

All monies generated are reinvested back into the organisation to cover the cost of materials and training.

We offer accredited training to young people and adults. By undertaking training and learning new skills, participants will improve their confidence, self-belief, self-esteem and their overall mental wellbeing. By improving these aspects of their wellbeing, participants will feel more confident and ready to move into further training or employment, which will help to improve participants wellbeing.

Our programs will have a positive impact on the local environment which is central to our ethos of reducing, recycling, reusing and re-skilling. We promote our vision of supporting people, helping communities and building a greener tomorrow by training local people, promoting recycling and reducing household waste which is a true reflection of the wider circular economy. We help community members, struggling with the cost of everyday life. We rely on donations of furniture to be sold, upcycled, or recycled by participants.

Our existing programs include: the women’s program (She Shed) and the men’s program (He Shed) and the main beneficiaries of these programs are unemployed, economically inactive men and women within the BT47, BT48 and BT82 areas, these being some of the most deprived areas in Northern Ireland for employment, education, training, and skills opportunities. The aim of the program is to afford beneficiaries lacking in skills and/or confidence, the opportunity to progress into areas of education/training and employment that they ordinarily would not consider. It covers topics such as restoration / upcycling / painting and decorating / basic joinery and basic construction skills.  We also provide support to overcome personal barriers individuals may face that inhibit their development.

The team are also working towards a clear vision for a Zero Waste Circular Economy; this council area is the first region in the UK to achieve a zero-waste status which is defined in the community plan as, an economy where resources are used for as long as possible, have maximum value extracted from them and are recovered and regenerated at the end of their service life to achieve a Zero Waste Circular Economy.
