At The Furniture Station we work towards relieving poverty & distress by providing good-quality pre-loved furniture items to families and individuals experiencing financial hardship in Stockport and surrounding areas with Greater Manchester & East Cheshire. We work closely with local organisations and operate on a referral basis to support vulnerable households that are in need of basic items for their home. We supply these items including delivery for a small charge and operate a voucher scheme with several local agencies.
Working alongside 45 local organisations, we were able to deliver 2,848 items of pre-loved furniture were to 895 households experiencing financial hardship in 2015. We saved 94 tonnes of otherwise entering landfill by collecting from 1,616 donors. 6 people out of work were supported with work placements or a volunteering opportunity by helping us deliver our services.
By choosing to donate your furniture to The Furniture Station, you are supporting families within the area to turn their accommodation into a home.
