Volunteers play an important and intrinsic part in the day to day operations of the Project.
They in return, gain from their experiences and involvement with others associated with the Project.

“I started volunteering at the project in September 2016 after hearing from my brother who works there about the brilliant services they provide. I started off volunteering one day a week and now volunteer for six days! I enjoy meeting new people and have made lots of friends while working at the project. I find the work we do very rewarding and feel it has helped increase my confidence as well as my job potential. Volunteering at the project keeps me active and makes me feel useful. Prior to doing any voluntary work I was becoming very isolated. Now I look forward to the days when I am working. The staff at the project are very encouraging and supportive and this motivates the volunteers. By volunteering at the project, I am able to see first-hand what a difference the work they do makes to people’s lives.”
David, Volunteer Driver
“I started volunteering at the project in July 2017 and I do 3 days a week volunteering in the warehouse. I enjoy working with everyone; they make me feel like part of the family. I live on my own and can get quite bored and feel isolated so having somewhere to go where I can make a difference and help people is really important to me.”
John, Volunteer Warehouse Assistant
“I started volunteering as an assistant at The Furniture Project shop over 8 years ago. It gives me great pleasure to work for the Project and to serve the public and help them set up their forever homes. I enjoy working with the staff and volunteers as part of a friendly team…”
