On The Ground Projects

Whistle is a ‘hands on and on the ground’ charity. We identify a need; we act on that need as we see. Over the years we have acted on needs identified both small and big.

We have refurbished and rebuilt as necessary in quite tight schedules. We have a great team, and we always succeed within our deadline. Our days are long, they are hard, but they are most rewarding. Some of the more recent and on-going ‘on the ground’ projects we have worked on from small to big are.
