Community Concerns

People with low incomes and small organisations have
the least amount of money for improving spaces.

There’s gaps in skills and employment for disadvantaged
people not suiting mainstream learning and working.

Care/community organisations and schools seek
engaging activities for a range of ages, needs and abilities.

Lastly we face a global waste crisis. Purposeful and
creative recycling solutions are needed to reduce landfill.



Improvement projects, skills-to-employment programs,
community engagement workshops and recycling
initiatives can be expensive and complicated.

SCENE has developed a low-cost, simple solution
by combining these concerns with a sustainable,

Community Improvement and
Skills-to-Employment Program


Many
small organisations have little or no money. Any funding
is needed for services assisting vulnerable people in our
community. Premises can become worn, tired and unwelcoming.

These spaces provide low-pressure, flexible training environments
for individuals who often aren't suited to mainstream education
and employment.

Individuals experiencing disadvantages due to; social, emotional,
physical, intellectual, age, cultural and language barriers.

Experienced volunteers demonstrate skills on site. As participants
practice them, the organisation receives an aesthetic make-over.

Skills can include hands-on activities like wall painting and working
on furniture or creative pursuits like making decor and artwork.

There's activities such as planning, admin and 3D modelling for
participants more comfortable with technology. And organising/
sorting skills for persons who suit simple or repetitive tasks.



These projects are not only inclusive, they are extremely low
cost. Furniture, items and materials are 90%-95% recycled.
Often sourced and/or donated free of charge.


*SCENE prides itself on tailoring programs to suit individuals
and groups. It's newest skills and improvement program will
be held on a social housing estate, empowering residents to
improve their personal living spaces.

Social Enterprise

For participants who enjoyed the skills and did well in the
community projects, it's hoped in 2020 SCENE will offer
design & decoration services to the public. This model is
a safe, soft transition to employment.

These services will be available to small local business
and home owners needing improvements but unable to
afford the high cost trades and designers.



Income from these services will provide wages for participants
and generate funds for further community improvement projects.

Inclusive Workshops and Outreach Program

The decor & design workshops used in the community improvement
projects are contemporary, simple, quick, affordable and recycled.
Suiting all ages and abilities.

These workshops are available to the general community in SCENE
design studios called '
RePsyched!' and via free online resources.

The simple, purposeful and affordable nature of the workshops have
caught the attention of care/community organisations and schools.


SCENE is in the early stages of offering a mobile workshop program
to reach more of the community called 'RePsyched! Road Trip'.

Sustainability

The items and furniture created via the studio workshop techniques will
become available for purchase via the retail arm of SCENE; '
Junk Funk'.


SCENE envisions people in our community doing fun, interesting and
therapeutic activities, while using materials & items that would otherwise
go to landfill. Creating quality recycled decor, where the profit from sales
funds further community improvement projects and enriching programs.
