Who we are…

The William Wilberforce Trust is part of the Holy Brompton Church and runs a Furniture Reuse Project in Hounslow. It’s staffed by volunteers undertaking a 16 week Employability Programme, aimed at resourcing and equipping those with major barriers to employment by providing workplace experience, training and mentoring within a growing social enterprise.

The Furniture Re-use Project, based in Brentford, collects unwanted furniture from local homes and businesses (restores them when required) and sells them at very affordable prices to members of the public. Roughly one quarter of all furniture sold goes to low-income households.

What we’ll use your donations for…

Re-ward Club donations would help sustain the work experience for the volunteers and go towards the large running costs of the project. Most of the team on the employability programme are ex-offenders, ex-addicts or ex-homeless and this initiative helps them move on to paid work.
