Mustard Tree exists to create choice and opportunity for people who are homeless and marginalised.
The Freedom Project is aimed at those who have additional barriers to moving on in life, such as homelessness, mental health issues, addiction recovery or a criminal record. It runs for 20 weeks and allows participants to gain work skills and experience within the six main areas of our operation: warehousing & deliveries, catering, customer services, facilities management, waste recycling and office admin.
Your skills, time, passion and resources can go a long way and make a genuine difference to someone who has run out of their own. We work with many who are just like you but because of relational break down, grief, addiction, loss of jobs and abuse find themselves struggling to survive. Donate, volunteer, fundraise, campaign for Mustard Tree to help create choice and opportunity for people who are homeless and marginalised.
