The Doorstop Shop exists to offer the local community an opportunity to purchase quality, upscaled and newly crafted wooden items made by our trainees. Our trainees are all ex homeless, or those vulnerably housed, who are trying to get back on their feet. All the profits go into helping ex-homeless start a new life.

Reception/Meet and Greet – welcome customers, thank them for visiting us, ensure compliance with Covid guidelines and answer any questions regarding the project etc (training will be provided).

Checkout and gift wrapping – take customers money and give correct change if cash, take card payments using our card reader and record sales (training will be provided). We pay special attention to how we wrap gifts, so that people will know that we care.
