Splash Pilion

Splash Pilion Paint Project is a Social Enterprise:

“Resettlement services can help former homeless families and single people make an

effective transition to a new home. Homeless people often move into new properties

with few financial resources or personal possessions and may have lost contact with

friends, family and other social networks. Schemes that provide practical, emotional

and financial help, often combining support from paid staff and volunteers, have

proved successful in ensuring that tenancies do not break down. These schemes

should be as much part of Supporting People as a homelessness strategy.

The Government should consider the feasibility of targets that measure how effective

local services are at sustaining tenancies.”I   Shelter.

The Service:

Splash Pilion will operate as a social enterprise on a not for profit basis

Our paint shop will open from 10 till 5pm from Monday to Friday for purchase of paint

Customers will also be able to discuss work that needs to be done

We supply paint at £1 per litre to low income, vulnerably housed people and those engaging with services that address ‘complex needs’

This will be done through a voucher and referral system

The service will be available to single persons and families

Art collectives, squat groups, community centres/groups, schools and colleges can all express an interest

We will work with the above groups to establish Splash Pilion as a viable project

We will provide a painting and decorating service to these groups at an affordable rate

To train service user volunteers in customer service and painting/decorating NVQ 2’s or equivalent

Service users volunteers will have the opportunity to access this project through a referral system

All service user volunteers will go through an application and induction process

To paint at least one community project annually.
