Contact Us

Thank you for getting in touch with Tools for Self Reliance. It may take us a little longer than normal to get back to your messages.
Thank you for your patience and bearing with us as we adjust to the changing circumstances.

Its great to be open again! To help us operate a 72 hour quarantine period for donated items we are open to accept tool donations only on

Monday and Tuesday’s, 10:00am – 3:30pm.

Please turn left at the end of the car park to drop tools off at the back of the workshop, on the pallet provided. If you need assistance please ring the doorbell on the back green door.


Thank you for your understanding and for your generosity in donating your tools and sewing machines.

Help us place tools in the hands of new trainees.
