New-U swap shop now open

The New-U shop is unique in that it will operate on the basis of donate, swap or loan and no cash transactions will be made but will operate using a voucher system.

Each item will be given a value and customers will be able to swap or loan items based on their value.

The shop will also provide ‘smart’ clothes for any occasion that young adults (16-30) can borrow for job interviews or similar occasions.  This is aimed at those who could not otherwise acquire suitable clothing.

New-U is a Swap Shop set up in partnership between OPEN Youth Trust and Talent Match New Anglia and funded through The Big Lottery Fund.
