Providing a Safe Space to recover

A world where the homeless are not sleeping rough on the street. Any person faced with homelessness gets a safe place to sleep as well the support they need for their individual circumstances, to realise their potential and avoid becoming homeless again.

Profits from the company go back into Amazing Grace Spaces so we can achieve our charitable aims and support homeless people.

Innovative Low Cost Housing

We aim to provide 10 sustainable low cost move on accommodation units for  people in crisis by 2020.  We are working towards partnering with other agencies such as Newport Council, Welsh Government and other housing service providers.

Access to quality affordable accommodation in an innovative way by creating module homes made from shipping containers. These containers are an environmental solution to housing. They recycle-able and have limitless up-cycle possibilities. Very often the basic need is for affordable accommodation and can be the first obstacle for someone to overcome. Once this need is met and people feel safe, then they can look to the future with renewed optimism.

The project includes assessment, mentoring, training and work experience. We are committed to establishing a sound base, working towards sustainability.
