Opening our doors in 2011, we started life as the first and only furniture reuse project in the Borough. Cut to today, we continue to be a non-profit organisation that works hard to give back to our community and help low-income families by providing them with affordable furniture. Our voucher scheme goes hand-in-hand with our two-tier pricing strategy. The first, our voucher scheme, enables those who are referred to us by Barnet Homes to receive free furniture and the second, our two-tier pricing strategy, allows those that are in receipt of benefits to be given a substantial discount on our already low cost furniture.
We rely solely on donations to continue the work we do for our community. The generous donations we receive enable us to provide affordable furniture to our customers, it also means that we can divert a large amount of unwanted furniture that would otherwise be put in landfill.
Since the shutters rolled up on our Aladdin’s Cave 5 years ago, we have diverted more than 2,500 tonnes away from landfill.
The work we do would not be possible without the help of our volunteers and work placements. We have people from all walks of life who kindly give us their time. Some of whom, have even found us when they have been in need of help to ease them back into the work environment. Our volunteers provide with an amazing range of skillsets, from repairing and up-cycling furniture to answering phones and managing the warehouse. We are always looking for new people to lend us a hand: so if you have some spare time for your local furniture reuse please do get in touch!
