Moray Reach Out is a charity that runs several social enterprises that provide work and training opportunities to vulnerable adults throughout Moray. We are looking for volunteers to help support our vulnerable adults. For our projects, communication skills and empathy are essential. Moray Reach Out's Upcycling Project takes discarded wooden pallets from local business and turns them into saleable house and garden items. Pallets are taken apart, the planks sanded, measured, sawn and made up into decorative boxes, shelving and planters for the garden. All carried out using hand tools, suitable for varying skills and ability. To volunteer for this project, it would be preferred if you have basic DIY skills, so these can be transferred to help our vulnerable adults. These would include using a handsaw, hammering nails, and using simple power tools such as cordless drills and sanders. Please bring your own overalls if you can!

We are looking for volunteers to help support our vulnerable adults. For our projects, communication skills and empathy are essential. The Moray Reach Out Art Yarn Project delivers the many processes of turning locally farmed Shetland sheep fleece into saleable hanks of wool. This offers opportunity for all abilities to be involved, from washing the fleece, teasing the wool fibres open, carding the wool ready for spinning, spinning the wool and hanking it for sale. Everyone of these processes is carried out by hand, allowing for physical activity, reducing stress levels and developing social skills as you will working as part of a team. Volunteers need no experience of working with wool or spinning. There are so many facets to this project, there is something for every skill level. If you do spin, great! If you would like to learn, you soon will!
