Southampton - Make a House a Home - Reserved by Arqiva

Physical team challenge: Support a local homeless charity and help turn a house into a home.

The charity specialises in providing accommodation and support for vulnerable young people across Southampton and has a number of residential units. One of these properties, a 5 bed shared accommodation house in Portswood sees staff provide a medium level of support to residents. Facilities on site include a communal lounge, dining room, kitchen and bathroom.

The communal lounge would benefit from a makeover with a fresh coat of paint to make a more welcoming environment. Some gloss work would also be required.  

The hallway, stairs and landing would also benefit from a makeover. The property also has a reasonably sized garden which would benefit from a creative mind and volunteer support in creating a vegetable patch for staff to grow vegetables with residents. A team could choose to undertake all or some of this project.

Materials required: Yes
