Woking Community Furniture Project
The Woking Community Furniture Project is a local, registered charity that provides donated furniture, household goods, and electrical items at low cost to people in Woking and the surrounding area, with a special focus on discounted prices for those in the community needing help. We rely entirely on donations from the public.
We consistently support around 2,500 people (1,000 households) who are suffering financial or other hardship each year. Moreover, in the last year, we have prevented 59,768 tonnes of waste going to landfill sites and managed to re-use 92.7% of the items we collect.
We collect unwanted furniture and electrical items from the local community and provide these items at low cost to families and individuals in need, who live in Woking and the surrounding areas.
Our team of volunteers and staff are on hand to refurbish items where necessary and test all electrical equipment before resale. This process transforms waste into good quality furniture and houses into homes, whilst also transforming the lives not only of those who receive the re-used items, but also those who work for the charity.
Our main goal is to have a positive impact on the local community and our environment. We aim to achieve this through developing/delivering good quality and sustainable re-used goods, recycling, generating employment and volunteering opportunities and offering training services.
We hope to contribute towards improving the lives of those who live in Woking and the surrounding areas, ultimately improving the quality of life of the whole community.
