Objectives

We sell second-hand furniture at very reduced prices to people on low incomes and this also reduces landfill, money raised from this goes towards free training for local people on long term sickness benefit, the unemployed, people with mental health issues, adults who are struggling with basic Maths and English, young people at risk of offending. The aim is to build confidence and have a positive influence to enable them to feel empowered to move on in life or to encourage them towards further education or employment.

We help people in crisis with essential equipment.

We are passionate about the planet and recycle, up cycle and reduce landfill in every way we can.
