About BackOutThere

At BackOutThere we want to give people from all walks of life the opportunity to work on a variety of projects developing confidence and skills.

Established by a team of British Service personnel we aim to provide people the opportunity to serve within their local community creating comradeship, achievement and purpose.

We work on community based projects which have included transforming unloved spaces into gardens and improving open spaces.

Our long term goal is for our volunteers to gain the skills, confidence and renew the sense of comradeship they had during their time of service.
