Here's an example of the quality of furniture we receive

 

RE>BUILD’s CEO says “People think it is just about furniture, but it is far more than that; it’s about people and how you give them the dignity they deserve.  The furniture is what enables us to help the people we do – it’s the catalyst.”

 

RE>BUILD’s aim is:

TO SUPPORT THE LOCAL COMMUNITY WITH LOCAL SERVICES

WE DO THIS BY:

Collecting quality unwanted furniture from households in Bury and the surrounding areas;

Re-distributing this furniture, at affordable prices, to local households who need it;

Reducing the amount of goods that unnecessarily end up in landfill and divert increasing amounts back into re-use;

Recycling where items are beyond their reuse life;

Providing a Community Re-Paint scheme for families, individuals, and community groups at a very low cost, so reducing paint being landfilled;

Providing a supportive volunteer service with ongoing training, access to information and advice, assistance with job seeking, and emotional and practical support;

Offering practical learning opportunities to people from a range of disadvantaged backgrounds including those with disabilities;

Providing employment for local people;

Aiming to be as financially self-sustaining as possible, vital in the current climate.

RE>BUILD (Bury) began operating as Bury Furniture Project in the Bury Metro area in 1998 in response to a need for furniture recognised by housing agencies in Bury.  In April 2004 the project became the independent charity that it is today and since then has developed its services in a big way.  RE>BUILD is a registered charity and not-for-profit company and operates under the guidance of a Board of Trustees. The day-to-day work is undertaken by a team of support staff and a growing number of dedicated volunteers.  We re-use domestic furniture and paint, and offer a wide range of practical training, volunteering and work experience opportunities to local people.

We also recycle as much as we can of those items that cannot be reused, for example metal items are sent for recycling.  In addition, we recycle all our scrap paper, card and plastic, and we have a compost bin on-site.

Although, on the face of it, Bury is considered to be an affluent area, there are many people on low incomes, whether on benefits or in low paid employment.  Some cannot afford to replace worn out furniture, some have children with disabilities and may need to replace furniture on a frequent basis.  Be it families with children or individuals and whatever the reason, RE>BUILD is able to help.
