We are run by a small friendly team of staff and volunteers with our sole intention being to enable all Stevenage residents to put a decent home together. We collect good quality furniture and electricals from donors within the local Stevenage community and pass them on for a handling charge to those on a low income.
We collect donated items of good quality furniture and large electrical items in Stevenage and the surrounding villages which are re-distributed via a handling charge to all members of the local community, especially those who are on a proven low income, benefits or are in conditions of need.
To register with the Scheme you will need to bring 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. Once registered you can purchase at the lower price.
Members of the general public can purchase from the Scheme but pay a slightly higher handling charge.
By encouraging re-use your donations help make a positive impact on your community. In the last year your donations have saved 66 tonnes of good quality items from going into landfill, re-distributed 2000 items and supported over 5000 individuals.
We rely heavily on the support of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering with us click here.
