Client starts business

In May this year the Dorset homeless outreach team met Dave, he was sleeping in a tent on Chesil beach and living off whatever he managed to fish. Supported by Julian House, Wise Ability and The Lantern, Dave has found himself in rented accommodation, and has just started up-cycling second hand furniture.

He creates beautiful, individual pieces to a very high standard and has managed to find space to use as a workshop. Over the next few months he hopes to turn his talent into a business and sell his bespoke furniture to the public.
