"RURAL SKILLS THERAPY - I really enjoyed the Coppice Products Course. It gave me so much confidence and fulfilment. I would like to further these skills and take them in to a working environment as quickly as possible."
Civvy Street can be tough...
Does this sound familiar to you, your spouse or a family member?
Not sure what to do next?
Looking for a new career?
Unemployed or homeless?
Worried about it all getting on top of you?
Come and join other veterans for a cup of tea, a bit of banter, and meet people who will know what you are facing.
At The Cart Shed Charity you will be supported by our Veteran Mentor, OT and our experienced team of tutors and craftspeople helping to signpost, overcome and resolve issues you may be facing enabling you to 'Move On'.
You can choose from a range of coppice craft, woodland skills and horticulture options. Please click here to see our current courses.
As a result of advice from government advisors, The Cart Shed Charity will be suspending its daily woodland activities until further notice.
We are offering a phone based service Mon-Fri 9am-5pm to our participants, which is complemented by text messages, emails, WhatsApp converstions and dedicated Facebook groups for particular courses. Our fantastic team of dedicated staff are rising to the challenge this pandemic presents and have created an entirely new service to support our participants, volunteers and each other.
We are facing an unprecedented crisis as a country because of Covid-19 and sadly for some there will be the trauma of saying goodbye to a close family member or a friend.
Many of us are living with fear or anxiety – do not stay alone with your worries or grief. We will do our best to be with you, so stay in touch or get in touch.
We hope to extend this offer to the wider community before too long.
Stay safe, stay well and stay connected.
