Ipswich Furniture Project has been operational as a registered charity since 1989. The Project is here to assist people of any age, whose needs may vary from a single item, to a complete house full of furniture. In common with most other furniture and appliance re-use charities, Ipswich Furniture Project was formed with the express desire to alleviate poverty and provide a social need to those disadvantaged and socially excluded, by providing decent quality furniture and white goods to any persons on a low income who lives in the Borough of Ipswich or surrounding area who could not, for whatever reasons, afford to purchase items to furnish their homes from conventional retailers.
A secondary function of the Project is the collection of scrap white goods – cookers, fridge’s etc., currently free from the householders of Ipswich. This is a partnership with Ipswich Borough Council.
The New Furniture Initiative is available to social landlords and other agencies providing housing support. We supply new furniture, cookers etc., so the landlord can provide furnished accommodation to those in need in East Anglia.
