New U is a clothing and accessories shop with a difference.

New-U operates on a basis of donate, swap or loan with no cash transactions being made, instead it runs using a voucher system.

 

Customers can to donate items of clothing* and accessories they no longer need and if they want, swap for items of the same value.

 

Each item donated is given a value and customers will be given vouchers which can then be redeemed against other items within the store.

 

The shop also provides '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.

 

The other purpose of this shop is to give young people the skills and confidence to progress into employment by offering retail work experience placements in a supportive environment.

 

*Items of clothing need to be new or nearly new.

 

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