Apprenticeships
Promoting positive change 

Fresh Start Charity (Charity No: 1191326) began in July 2019 as Hadleigh Foodbank.  Since April 2021, to meet with business demand, we have expanded and opened a further two charity shops which support the Foodbank. Recently, the original Hadleigh Food Bank name has been changed to Fresh Start Charity in recognition of our charity status and expansion of the business outside of Hadleigh.  

 

In May 2022 we will open Fresh Start & Coffee in Carr Street, Ipswich.   

The Fresh Start shop & Coffee café has been designed to support 16–24-year-olds identified as NEET, (Not in Employment or Education), with a 6-month programme to provide work experience, and much needed transferable skills into hospitality and the retail work place environment.  

 

The Apprentice roles we are offering will be to learn all aspects of the business including mentoring of the NEET individuals.
