    A Fantastic Perth Charity – Starting Over Support (SOS)

    Recently we paid a visit to an amazing Perth charity organisation doing fantastic work in the Perth community – Starting Over Support.

    Started in 2014, Starting Over Support provide household goods and furniture to help ease the transition into independent living for individuals and families leaving the security of a shelter or refuge.

    Founder Debra Martin told us that when people escape a crisis situation like domestic violence, they usually have very little in the way of personal possessions or money, let alone the big ticket items like a fridge or a bed. So when they manage to get to new accommodation, filling the space with everything a home needs is next to impossible.

    Here’s where Debra steps in. With the help of her 100% volunteer team of thirty, Starting Over Support deliver ten to twelve houses worth of furniture every week to people in need.

    The range of items that Debra brings to people is nothing short of comprehensive. From the important pieces like beds, lounges, cabinets and tv units through to the smaller items like cutlery, pots, pans and kitchen supplies, the list goes on, including pillows, bed linen, toys even pieces of art for the walls!

    In just three and a half years, they have become a crucial support organisation helping thousands of Perth people every year, and we want help spread the word as far and as wide as we can. So if you are looking to help out and volunteer for a very worthy cause, go say hi to Debra at Starting Over Support.
