Second Opportunities is a charity registered in Scotland and operating as a Social Economy Business. Since 1991 our Furniture & White Goods Reuse & Recycling services have been helping tackle the effects of poverty and social exclusion in Glasgow and the surrounding areas while providing the environmental benefit of diverting furniture which could otherwise would have ended up in landfill.
Our Furniture Reuse and White Goods Re-use Centre is open to the public acting as an attractive and popular pre-loved second hand furniture retail space, sales from which help generate much needed income used to subsidise support to service users who are referred from our network of support agencies. Visitors will find a wide variety of competitively priced pre-loved furniture and white goods aimed at meeting all the household needs and which help turn a house into a home.
