Established in 2016 to tackle Social Isolation and loneliness in the community. We work with people with altzhimers, dementia, mental health issues, additional support needs, disabilities, recovery from strokes, remission from cancer, chronic illness and language issues. During the summer months we deliver a free school uniform campaign, collecting donations of school uniform and distributing to parents and children; we have also sent school uniform to Malawi and clothing to Tunisia, Russia and Cuba. We provide starter boxes for those coming out of homelessness and women’s refuges with essential kitchen items and liaise with other community organisations to source furniture and other items. We have recently started working with community health visitors working in areas of deprivation dealing with new mums to source baby push chairs, bedding and baby clothes. We work with a network of individuals and organisations. We promote the environmental awareness through Reduce, Reuse & Recycle. The services provided will continue to be delivered as long as there is a demand and we can continue to rely on the donations that help generate funding.
Established in 2016, Pretty Unique Boutique CIC was created by two people with a passion for helping the local community. Our goal is to help as many people as possible, and we do this by offering paid and unpaid opportunities at our premises in Chryston, Muirhead and surrounding villages, as well as selling excellent products, including upcycled furniture and more. Our team are experienced in working with a range of people, and this helps us to create a real sense of community. Get in touch now to learn more about us.
Pretty Unique Boutique CIC offers a safe space for people facing loneliness and social isolation to pop in for a cuppa and a chat. We extend hospitality and offer a variety of activities.
Lots of high-quality items are donated, and these are sorted, sold, and sometimes upcycled. We’re keen crafters and upcyclers and we offer workshops to exchange skills and learn new ones. We are also a space for crafters to sell their creations while taking a commission.
