We work with Kettering Borough Council and other partners to provide low cost recycled furniture, from second hand sofas, to dining room furniture and household goods to those in need through our charity shops and our dignity in crisis project.
We have created partnerships with KBC, local charities and local businesses with the same mindset to support the most vulnerable people in our community. Partner organisations donate appropriate used and second-hand furniture for recycling and household items for people in need.
We also provide training courses on how to up-cycle discarded furniture which would normally go to landfill. We do this through a qualified Tutor which not only creates new use for these items but also teaches our students valuable skills that are transferrable and they can utilise in the future.
With our partnership with KBC unwanted items that are discarded in council premises that are in good condition are removed from the void properties, stored and re-distributed to those in need. This is done by KBC and local charities identifying the needs of vulnerable tenants, passing this information to the KCU project coordinator who organises the necessary recycled items to go to those in need. Treating the client with dignity is our priority at all times. Link to dignity project.
