StandFirm Social Enterprise
StandFirm ws set up and is wholly owned by the Mustard Tree; a charity supporting the homeless and marginalised across Manchester.
Our mission is to bring people in need hope by lifting the barriers that prevent them finding a job.
We have secured the void contract with Northwards Housing Association for their empty properties, and operate 2 vans with a team of 6 men to clean between 15 and 20 homes every week.
This has further encouraged us to seek an environmentally friendly approach to the bulky waste that we collect, and we have worked very hard to obtain a small warehouse from the Homes and Communities Association (HCA) and are developing this into a Recycling Centre. This will provide a number of opportunities for us to raise funds (which are passed on to the Mustard Tree charity), create a number of jobs, contribute to the increasingly important recycling and environmental agenda and become sustainable.
A work in progress…!
