A registered charity since 1995, we've been helping people on low incomes for many years.
We've been in Bordon ever since the start, and the range of things we offer has grown and grown...
From humble beginnings supplying a small range of furniture and kitchen appliances to local families, we now cover an area of 647 square miles, traveling around Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex.
We manage our own self-funded Crisis Fund which pays for emergency help for people in need of urgent assistance. We work with Councils, charities, Citizen's Advice, professional agencies and healthcare providers, to ensure that everyone who needs help receives it promptly.
We are well respected as an environmental solution provider too, offering services and consultative advice on recycling and reuse to Local, Borough and County Councils as well as businesses and individuals.
Because of our expertise in this field we perform bulky waste recycling collections on behalf of Guildford and Waverley Borough Councils, and within East Hampshire.
We are also proud to be involved in many other worthwhile causes -
We host the Men's Shed - where socially isolated people can come and use our fully equipped workshop.
We run the local Repair Cafe, where our friendly volunteers repair pretty much anything free of charge (where possible!)
We are members of the local Timebank, where people exchange time for expertise.
We run the local Fareshare food distribution scheme.
We are one of several local Registered Safe Places.
We offer volunteer placement schemes, where local people can learn about furniture repair or office admin.
New for 2021 is our shop in Bordon's Forest Shopping Centre, where we have a fantastic range of good quality furniture at decent prices!
