One25 - step away from the streets

Able Waste supports One25 charity for vulnerable women and families in Bristol.

One25  - Step Away From The Streets - charity for vulnerable women and families in Bristol Each year One25 works with around 300 women. The situations the women find themselves in range greatly from those trapped in the chaotic life of street sex-work to others who are courageously building a new life away from the streets. Your support will help each woman feel healthier, happier and truly cared for and give her the support she needs to transform her life.

"I am writing on behalf of everyone at One25 to thank you for so generously waiving your skip hire fee for our forthcoming FIREWALK event. It’s been a bit of a headache trying to organise the waste disposal for this event, so we feel hugely relieved and grateful that you stepped in to solve all our problems! It is lovely of you to think of the vulnerable women and families we support." Lu Willott, One25
