Boaz Project 

                            

 

 

 

                        

                                  

 

Boaz was set up to help address the lack of facilities for people with learning disabilities once they have left full time education. Its aim is to create an atmosphere of the work ethic for people who otherwise cannot gain employment. Its long term desire is to be able to employ some of those who access its facilities.  The Project's Christian ethos seeks to address the whole person, body, mind and spirit, aiming to release and realise each person's full human potential to the glory of God.  Many volunteers choose to help at the project as part of their own healing journey following bereavement, relationship breakdown or redundancy.
