The Community Furniture Stores are a group of three charities which help people in their local community by putting unwanted donated furniture back into circulation, reducing waste through Reuse and Upcycling, and provide employment and skills experience to people facing long term unemployment or barriers to work. 

Everyone is welcome to visit our stores, browse our range of good quality donated furniture and buy goods at affordable prices. We also sell a range of affordable new goods including kitchen electricals, beds, and bedroom furniture.

The Community Furniture Stores are part of the Reuse Network, a national organisation committed to reusing, repairing and recycling unwanted goods to protect the environment and make affordable, quality goods available to everyone. Last year the three stores reused over 22,500 items of furniture, electrical appliances and other household items preventing an estimated 500 tonnes of unnecessary waste, and helping over 10,000 households to make better homes.

To find us, check out our locations and opening times.

We are always looking for good quality, reuseable donations so if you’re looking to donate furniture, household items or electricals that no longer fit your needs, the Community Furniture Stores can collect it and make sure it’s put to good use. 

Community RePaint

The three Community Furniture Stores are members of the national Community RePaint scheme which puts leftover paint back into use through donations to community groups and sales to the public. We sell paint from as little as £2 per litre, this includes end of line stock from major manufacturers and retailers as well as leftover paint from commercial decorators.  We also stock ReColour, a range of re-manufactured high quality paint available in matt or silk finish in a palette of 20 colours.

 

Workshops

Each Community Furniture Store has an integral workshop that tests electrical goods, repairs donated items and creates unique up-cycled furniture.  The workshops offer training, work experience and wellbeing opportunities for people that are unemployed or find it difficult to gain paid employment. Many participants go on to find work, including some in our own stores.
