We are run by a small friendly team of staff and volunteers, our sole intention is to enable all Stevenage residents to have the opportunity of putting a decent home together. We collect good quality furniture and white electrical goods from donors within the local Stevenage community and pass them on for a handling charge to all local residents but especially to those on a low income or in conditions of need.
We collect good quality furniture and large electrical items in Stevenage and the surrounding villages, Knebworth, Watton, Walken, Datchworth, Aston, Graveley and Little and Great Wymondley. All residents can buy from us but If you are on a benefit/pension you can register with us and purchase at a reduced price.
To register with the Scheme we will need to see up to date proof of benefits and proof of address (an online statement is fine). We accept a range of benefits including Universal Credit, Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance, Employment Support Allowance, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit, Working Tax Credits, Child Tax Credits, Pension/Pension Credit and Disability Benefits. Please note that we need to update your registration every six months unless you are receiving a pension.
By encouraging re-use your donations help make a positive impact on your community. Despite our work being disrupted by the pandemic over the past 12 months we have collected over 1000 items supporting over 500 local families.
We rely heavily on the support of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering with us click here.
