Barnet Furniture CentreFurnishing you for your future life.
Since opening in 2011 we have:
Tonnes diverted from landfill
Barnet Furniture Centre started out in 2011 as the first and only furniture reuse project in the Borough. Today we continue as a non-profit charitable 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 vouchers enable those who are referred to us by Barnet Homes to receive free furniture and our two-tier pricing strategy allows those that are in receipt of benefits to be given a discount on our already low-cost furniture.
We rely solely on donations to continue the work we do for the community. The donations we receive enable us to provide affordable furniture to our customers and mean that we can divert a large amount of unwanted furniture that would otherwise be sent to landfill.
Since the doors opened 6 years ago, we have diverted over 700 tonnes away from landfill.
A huge thank you goes out to our hardworking pool of 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!
