Handcrafted is a Christian charity working with disadvantaged people in County Durham who long to turn their lives around, but need opportunities, mentoring and practical help. We work with people who have multiple and complex needs, including homelessness, mental health, offending and drug & alcohol abuse. We involve them in meaningful and empowering training doing woodwork, landscape gardening and house renovation projects.

The Anchor Foundation gave us a grant towards the core costs of running our programme of practical activities for a group of adults. We saw them progress from difficult and chaotic lives to finding new skills, routine and purpose.
