Our values are key to what we do at furniture matters, and we’re proud of the positive impact our work has on both our local communities and the local environment

What have we been up to recently?

Our goals

Furniture Matters’ goal is to help low income homeowners and renters buy affordable essentials: with furniture and white goods to help them set up in their home.

This particularly benefits those who may otherwise struggle, thinking their only option is to turnto the trap of high interest loans or weekly payment stores.

We extensively refurbish unwanted white goods, computers, cycles and other household goods,and provides them at low cost to local people in need.

We also offer a range of volunteering and accredited training opportunities for people who are out of work, and want to develop new skills or gain vital work experience.

Environmental impact

The ease of our free collection services means that so many unwanted items are taken away tobe repaired and refurbished. These are then sold locally at low cost, or donated to charitable causes and used to help those in need in the local community.

So items which would either end up in landfill, or simply dumped, are given a new lease of the local environment doesn’t feel the impact

Community & social impact

There are three ways in which our work benefits people locally


Being able to provide quality new and used white goods, furniture and domestic appliances at such a low cost means fewer people resort to high interest credit to finance something as necessary as having furniture in your home.


We have a range of volunteering and work experience opportunities that provide skills training and enhance employment prospects for people in the area.


We help local charitable causes, such as domestic abuse or homelessness refuges. By donating items, you could be helping to furnish someone’s room or new home who otherwise wouldn’t be able to make somewhere feel like home.
