Shabby 2 Chic training has been an excellent way of engaging some of the more difficult to reach adults. It has provided a focus to their work and has had a very positive impact upon self confidence, motivation and self esteem. Companions themselves described the training as inspiring.
The skills have been passed on to other Companions with Emmaus Preston and across the UK. On a practical level, the furniture has been selling very well and seeing their designs and creations being bought by members of the public has made Companions feel very positive about themselves and their future.
