Weʼve raised £2,732 to buy our own site so we can help more of our less fortunate and offer independent living container conversions.

Don't have time to donate right now?
We have been in service and parked in the Freston lay-by since 13th November 2017. in that time we have had over 30 guests staying with us on the bus which most are now in their own accommodation of some sort and some are also in full time employment, but we can and want to do more !!!!!!
To do this though we need our own site, a piece of land or compound we can call our own and expand on the services we currently offer. At moment we can only offer a number of spaces on our TIFFERS bus to those that are ready to change and have already started the process and being in a lay by we can not expand.
Our own site would enable us to provide training of all sorts including trade skills such as basic electrics, plumbing, woodwork and other basic day to day diy skills. Through our founder Gareth and a host of volunteers we have the tools and the experience, we just need the space !!!
We would also be able to start our vision of converting 20 & 40 ft containers into independent living apartments to provide a long term solution and ease the NEED to sleep on our streets or sofa surf. This will also provide a fixed address for our residents making it easier to apply and hold down work placements. For the project it means we can claim housing benefit for individuals currently not fit for work which in turn will provide a sustainable income to help carry the organisation forward.
The opportunities and services we could offer from such a site would be such a benefit to not only the homeless which is our main focus but to the local communities as a whole with a range of volunteering opportunities from building and maintenance to one to one listening and training.
So our aim for 2020 is to fund raise as much as we can to hit our target and buy our own site. You can follow our progress and get all our updates via our face book page @ TIFFERSBUS
