Trades & Building Supplies We Need

Blue Wren House – Camden Women’s Shelter Inc (BWHCWS) is a community based, not-for-profit, non-government charitable institution to provide relief and support to Women and Children in need who are suffering, experiencing or escaping from homelessness due to Domestic or Family violence, abuse or helplessness. We are currently in the initial stages of securing donations and assistance to renovate our exciting new ‘meanwhile shelter’ and are in need of the following trades and supplies to help bring our Shelter to life.

Where possible, it is our preference to share the love and allow as many local services to join in and work together for such a worthy cause. As understand that many small businesses may wish to help but will be unable to donate unending services or labour, so wherever possible requirements will be divided up.

The list is regularly updated – current as of 3rd February 2021.
