Need help getting furniture for your home?
During these turbulent times, most of us are having to tighten our belts. As a result, purchasing new furniture and other items for a property can get very expensive. This page gives details of a variety of furniture projects across the East Midlands which can help you furnish your homes affordably, or donate your unwanted items.
As well as providing affordable furniture for tenants, re-use projects offer excellent value for money for housing associations. The schemes help to sustain tenancies and avoid rent arrears, particularly for more vulnerable tenants, and improve the skills base of the local community through volunteering, employment and work-based training opportunities. They support drive for sustainable communities and social and financial inclusion.
The Nottingham and Leicester Credit Unions also work in partnership with the CO-OP to offer a wide range of electrical goods, which can be purchased with a Credit Union loan. This is a far cheaper option than buying products from high-interest weekly payment stores, or with a loan from a doorstep lender. For more information, see our Credit Unions page.
