The idea

Helping to fund their large second-hand superstore and workshops where donated goods are repaired, refurbished, upcycled or upholstered.

Through this work, people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion, called 'companions', are offered the opportunity to learn a variety of skills and gain valuable work experience, all whilst still providing the wider community, especially low-income households the chance to buy affordable, quality furniture.
