Three stores, one community

The Community Furniture Stores are charities which collect and make available for re-use, donated furniture, electrical and other household items, selling them from their retail outlets together with some new goods. The Stores provide skills training and volunteering placements for people who are unemployed or have other needs. Community Furniture Stores also seeks to promote re-use to reduce waste to help protect the environment. We offer part-time, full-time and volunteer opportunities across our stores.

“Working at Community Furniture Store has allowed me to develop my career working in the charity sector, meet some great colleagues and do some good for people in need.”

— Louise, sales assistant

Why volunteer with us?

  • Make new friends
  • Work experience
  • Training and skills

Joining us as a volunteer is a great way to gain experience and skills in areas which are an interest to you. We work as a team to share skills and learn new ones, too. We would not be able to continue or work without the support of our volunteers; we aim to make sure everyone enjoys being part of the Community Furniture Store family. We are able to offer opportunities to gain work experience and skills in the following areas: Customer Service and Retail, Stock Management within the stores and warehouses, supporting the delivery teams out in the community on the delivery vans. Also, becoming a participant in our workshop programme allows individuals to gain and share skills and knowledge in furniture maintenance, upholstery, woodwork, upcycling, reclaiming and recycling household items and furniture to gain a new lease of life.
