Our purpose

Making homes

Our donated furniture is very reasonably priced and, if you are in receipt of income support and are referred to us with a grant, the scheme provides a discount of 20% on the sale price.

We work with local agencies who refer clients with grants to the Scheme to get essential furniture. These include:

Protecting the environment

By re-using furniture we’ve saved hundreds of tonnes of furniture from going to landfill.  Where we can’t re-use and we have the resources available, we refurbish and recycle. 

Building community

We offer a broad range of roles to cater for a very broad range of skills.  Jobs include:

  • Warehouse and customer support
  • Van operations
  • Workshop repairs
  • Furniture refurbishment (Carousel)
  • Upholstery
  • Gardening
  • Odd jobs
  • Painting and decorating

Funding

The Scheme is run as a charity. To support operations, we raise funds in the following ways:

Sale and delivery of furniture 

The bulk of our income is from the sale of furniture. We also charge for deliveries to help offset the costs of running our van.

Gift Aid

We claim 25% off the sale price for items where we have donors’ permission. This is very valuable to us
