Barnet Furniture CentreFurnishing you for your future life.
Since opening in 2011 we have:
Tonnes diverted from landfill
Barnet Furniture Centre is the pioneering furniture reuse project in the Barnet Borough. We are a non-profit charitable organisation with a strong community focus and we help low-income families by providing them with affordable furniture. Our voucher scheme goes hand-in-hand with our two-tier pricing strategy. The vouchers enable those referred by Barnet Homes to receive free furniture and our two-tier pricing strategy allows those in receipt of benefits to be given a discount on our already low-cost furniture.
We rely solely on donations to continue our work for the community. The donations we receive enable us to provide affordable prices to our customers and mean that we can divert a large amount of unwanted furniture that would otherwise be sent to landfill. Since opening this has equated to over 800 tonnes of landfill diversion.
A huge thank you goes out to our hardworking volunteers as the work we do would not be possible without their help. Our volunteers provide us with an amazing range of skill sets from carpentry, painting, upholstering & upcycling furniture to answering phones, administration and helping in the warehouse. We pride ourselves in offering training in the above skill-sets to the long-term unemployed and for those who have had difficulties in life.
We are always looking for new people to lend us a hand, so if you have some spare time and want to give a little back to your community then please do get in touch!
