  • Providing low cost access for those who can least afford to furnish their homes.

  • A Revolve accredited Furniture & White Goods Assessment, Repair and Processing operation which feeds the Reuse Centre.
  • We are members of the Community Resource Network Scotland, (CRNS) though whom we have achieved our Revolve accreditation and the Furniture Reuse Network (FRN) from whom we have achieved the Approved Reuse Centre accreditation and also members of the Glasgow Social Enterprise Network (GSEN).
