Habitat ReStore doesn't just help on a global scale. It also has a positive, lasting impact on our local community.

A safe environment to gain skills and confidence:


Volunteers have invested more than 40,000 hours into making ReStore successful. 38% of our volunteers are on supported placements through our partner organisations, including Action Mental Health, the Cedar Foundation, the Probation Board, and Stepping Stones. 

ReStore is also a unique inter-generational workplace, where people of all ages and abilities are encouraged and supported to reach their full potential. For example, retired volunteers provide mentor support for younger or vulnerable volunteers which, in the process, provides a renewed sense of purpose.
