Reuse Furniture to help those in need.
Gift92 helps people with limited finance and receiving state benefits to furnish a property.
From our warehouse in Plungington our area of operation is primarily Preston.
The Individuals and families we help have moved into an empty property and do not have the funds to furnish it. We supply the essential furniture and household items to help them create a home. In addition we deliver beds and kitchen appliances for clients of SELNET – UNDER ONE ROOF (LCC Crisis Support) which enhances the overall help we provide and extends our service to approximately a 14 mile radius of Preston Town Hall including Chorley and South Ribble.
We did not close during the covid pandemic and helped a substantial number of homeless individuals and families to be rehoused. During the year to 30 September 2021 we made 717 deliveries of furniture and appliances helping 1532 clients including 750 dependent children and 125 formerly homeless persons.
We cannot accept direct applications for assistance. All support given is through a referral from one of our referral agencies who contribute to our service costs.
Our service helps those we assist to avoid incurring debt. Furniture is free to recipients except for a delivery and administration charge.
Our charity is supported by generous members of the public who donate usable furniture and household items, we are always in need of more due to demand. Our collections last financial year totalled 1239 which provided the furniture needed for the assistance we gave.
It is not possible to accept all offers of furniture as items must have appropriate fire labels. Some three seater sofas are declined due to their size as they can be too large to facilitate access to an upstairs flat or older terraced house. Some display cabinets etc are not accepted for this reason.
