The ‘Rebuilding Lives’ model consists of a small team of qualified and skilled staff working through larger teams of typically 8-12 dedicated, well-trained and expertly supervised volunteers. The model increases capacity without increasing costs and is the perfect response to the double whammy of ‘reducing funding/increasing demand’ and ensures vulnerable people and families get the help they need, when and how they need it.

Without the commitment and dedication of an army of compassionate volunteers The Matthew Tree Project would not exist.
