Home Essentials (Shrewsbury Furniture Scheme)

Description:

Home Essentials (Shrewsbury Furniture Scheme), collects donated furniture, household goods and electrical items and recycles them for reuse at affordable prices, to people in need.

All items are collected and delivered free of charge to customers within the Shrewsbury and Atcham area.

People wishing to the use the scheme must bring with them an Agency Referral Form which provides proof that they are on a low income and be in receipt of benefits, tax credits, of pensionable age or under 25. Referral Forms are available from various local agencies such as Citizen's Advice Bureau, Benefits Agency, via Health Visitors, Doctor's surgeries and from Social Workers and Mental Health teams. The forms last for six months from the applicant's first purchase and are not extendable except under special circumstances.

Self referral is available by coming along to the warehouse along with proof of benefits.

Shropshire's five furniture recycling schemes have joined forces in a partnership aimed at increasing efficiency, SHOFUR - Shropshire Household Furniture Recycling Partnership. Each scheme will continue to work in their own areas. As a partnership they are working to find better ways to deal with household items which are no longer required by Shropshire householders.
