Help sought in riot rebuilding

A new initiative has been launched to help those devastated by the recent riots rebuild their homes, businesses and communities.

RiotRebuild is calling on construction firms, professionals and tradespeople willing to provide expertise to get involved free of charge.

The idea was launched by two architecture graduates, Lee Wilshire and Nick Varey, to help communities rebuild their high streets and homes.

“Following the clean-up comes the rebuild”, said Lee Wilshire.

“This will be a longer, slower, more painful process and far harder for businesses and residents to get back on their feet as they struggle amongst other things with slow insurance pay-outs or the lack thereof.”
