What We Do

SCRATCH operates several projects which are designed to relieve the effects of hardship, disadvantage and poverty for individuals and families living in Southampton and the surrounding area.  Further details of each project can be found on the individual pages.

  • DORCAS PROJECT – provides good quality furniture and household items
     
  • REMOVALS PROJECT – provides an emergency removal scheme mainly in conjunction with Winchester City Council
     
  • CHRISTMAS COMPLETE – provides toys and gifts for children and young people who otherwise might go without presents
     
  • COMMUNITY RE-PAINT – redistributes donated paint to referred clients and community group
     
  • MEGABITE MEAL SQUARES – is a means of providing hot meals to those begging on the streets and other vulnerable people.
  • WORKSHOP / UPCYCLING - gives volunteers to opportunity to make items from pallets and upcycle donated furniture that otherwise might end up in landfill

Please note that Dorcas Project, Removals Project, Christmas Complete and Community Re-paint are not direct access projects; individuals and families need to be referred by one of our recognised referral agencies.
