Welcome Home aims to help people moving on from homelessness by offering a range of services:
• a furniture bank to assist people make houses into homes. Someone with few possessions being allocated an unfurnished tenancy can find it a struggle to get the basic furniture needed. The programme will take donated furniture to assist set up homes.
• restyling and redesigning furniture and everyday items for sale in our Welcome Home retail boutique. This will offer homeless clients and volunteers the opportunity to rediscover skills and be trained in new ones which will help with employability
The retail boutique is open to the public and sells beautifully unique homeware and gifts – with proceeds being reinvested into the project creating more opportunities for more people.
As well as the retail boutique we also attend market stalls, festivals and more. Welcome Home can also provide crates to bring our range of gift items and small furnishings direct to your workplace making it more convenient for you to shop.
