A note on furniture donations

Occasionally from time to time we are in need of items of furniture to help furnish a flat a young person is moving into but unfortunately we have no storage space for large items of furniture so it does vary as to whether we can take such items. Please email us on the above email address if you have an item of furniture you would like to donate in the coming weeks and we will ask our project staff and let you know whether we can take it. N.B: All items of furniture must have the appropriate fire safety labels still attached.
