One of the projects that TIP runs is “The Loft”.

There are many great second hand furniture schemes and charity shops that offer reasonably priced furniture, but for many, even this is out of reach, being unable to pay for household items let alone the delivery charge.

We collect excellent condition, pre-loved furniture and small household items and arrange for them to be given – and delivered – for free to those who need them.

People starting with nothing really have.. nothing!

If you have good quality furniture, or small household items (kettles, toasters, fridges etc) that are in good working order but are no longer required, please get in touch.

If you have unwanted dinner services, random items of decent crockery, spare cutlery or kitchen utensils, then we can find a good home for them.

We would also love great condition items such as tea towels, table cloths etc – the small touches that can make somewhere feel like a home.

We want to take our project further, and truly help people to turn their new place into home. A place of safety, comfort and delight.

We are looking for donations of unused wallpaper, paint as well as (ideally new) paint brushes, rollers and trays.

Again, it is the little things, like being able to paint a wall, that those who are struggling are unable to do. When money is tight, decorating is a luxury.

If you have items you wish to donate or if you, or someone you know, could benefit from this service please get in touch by the link below.
