Free office furniture for London charity brings welcome praises for Exertus Projects
Exertus Projects recently provided free office furniture to London based charity, Drive Forward Foundation (www.driveforwardfoundation.com) on behalf of Green Furniture Aid. (www.greenfurniture.org.uk). Drive Forward Foundation is a charity with one mission… To equip care leavers with all the tools they need to take charge of their lives: their lives now and their lives in the future. The charity runs a 10 week training course which is designed to help care leavers aged between 17 and 25 create their future. It covers four key areas – career development, independent living, self expression and discovering London.
The charity offers a variety of support outside the training workshops, such as:
- One-to-one career support
- The opportunity to pair with a mentor in your field of interest to guide you through those tough decisions and help carve out the right path for you
- A bi-weekly job club – once they get to know you and what you’re interested in, they track down the right job
- DISCOVERY outings: Work Experience or Behind-The-Scenes days so that young people can experience a professional working environment and network with professionals in the field
Exertus Projects received the following comments from the Charity: -
“I would just like to say that we are absolutely delighted with the furniture you have supplied and very appreciative of the hard work of your guys today. Our office is on the third floor with no lift and they had to walk up and down numerous times, they kept a smile throughout and were so helpful and supportive. Nothing was too much trouble and it was a pleasure working with them.
Please pass on our thanks and appreciation. And thank you for your support throughout. Kind regards, Carole.”
