Our UK missions are practical-based 3-day trips in London, Preston and Nottingham.  The missions typically run from 9.00am Thursday until 5pm on Saturday including accommodation and meals for two nights. We work alongside local charities carrying out practical work such as refurbishing properties, DIY, decorating and garden-makeovers. Minimum age is 10 years. No skills are required – just a willingness to help.

The Projects

We have been working with partners in London, Preston and Nottingham involved in supporting vulnerable people locally and people living on the edge of society. This has involved refurbishing houses for unaccompanied migrants as well as creating a new garden where residents can feel safe and cared for in their time of greatest need. 

We have also renovated accommodation and have completed various DIY projects for people who might otherwise become homeless. By giving practical help we can prevent people from a feeling of despair and give them hope and encouragement. Minimum age is 10years. No skills required – just a willingness to help.  But, if you love gardening, DIY or are a builder or plumber, your skills will be welcomed.

Rest and Relaxation

Although the trips are short we ensure that you get some downtime at a nearby restaurant and the chance to get to know other team members.

The Impact So Far

In April 2017 Mission Direct launched its first UK project to make missions more accessible to a greater number of people. So far 25 volunteers have been helping Phoenix Community Care to renovate properties in Tottenham, North London, that they provide for unaccompanied minors from abroad. They created a whole new garden, including a new garden fence and plants, to provide a peaceful place. They renovated and decorated the driveway and front garden as well as giving the kitchen a spring clean.
