We try to provide the best possible furniture to our clients, believing that offering them high quality items is an important part of re-building their dignity and self respect. For this reason we do not give the furniture away, but we charge nominal prices so individuals can feel they have ownership of the items and are not just receiving a handout.
This means that we cannot accept items unless they are suitable for our clients' needs, or are able to be sold through our Furniture Shop to raise funds for CCA.
Please note that
ALL furniture donations
need to go through the
Furniture Donation Desk:
Phone 0118 951 2338
A viewing will be arranged when our van crews come to look at the furniture. If we can use the items we will normally take them away at the same time.
We cannot accept any donations at the Furniture Shop on Northumberland Avenue except by prior arrangement,
Our most urgent needs are:
Bed bases and mattresses
