The idea

Residents wanting to donate furniture are offered the repair, upcycle or exchange scheme. Residents wanting to purchase furniture for short-term use or those struggling with finances are offered the furniture loan scheme. The team will also aim to lease furniture on a short-term basis to landlords and tenants who require such services. They will also repair and upcycle clothing, bags, shoes, beads and other accessories.
