Out of the Dark

Description

Out of the Dark is a charitable social enterprise that recycles, restores and revamps salvaged furniture as a means to train, educate and employ young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

At the heart of Out of The Dark lies the premise of creating an extended family. Not only is the enterprise run as a family business, all young people involved are welcomes into the fold and become part of the family.

Founded by Jay and Jade Blades, Out of the Dark is an extension to Street Dreams, the charity that they have been running for the past 13 years.

Their charity's projects are all about supporting young people achieve a better life and steer away from crime, and this project brings in the element of craft, DIY and work skills. Not to mention the development of self esteem and confidence.

Their personal experience of rebellion and hardship in teenage years coupled with professional backgrounds in building, carpentry, interior and textile design has been the right mixture to make Out of the Dark a success.

Jay and Jade met at Bucks New University where Jay was studying a BSc in Criminology and Philosophy and Jade was studying a BA in Textiles Design and Art. They starting running youth projects whilst studying and over the years have built a charity that is supported by a board of trustees, volunteers and 13 ex project participants who are now paid workers.
