Transform Furniture started in December 2006 with three key aims
Providing quality reusable furniture items to vulnerable local groups, such as people moving out of homelessness, those not in employment, on a low-income, in receipt of benefits, students, elderly and disabled etc.
Creating training and employment opportunities for local people having difficulties in finding a job.
Reducing the amount of household goods that end up in landfill.
We have two shops which are open to the public Monday to Friday 10am-4pm. Referrals can be made via your support provider for those with requiring assistance in obtain furniture.
We also have some unique pre-loved items that range from antique to mid-century classics as well as some quirky upcycled pieces that our team of creative volunteers have designed.
We'll take most types of furniture, as long as it's in a useable condition. So sofas, armchairs, beds/mattresses, dining sets etc. Any furniture should have the appropriate fire labels, as without them we may not be able to use it.
Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities to re-cycle white goods, so cannot collect these, but there are other organisations within the city are set up to deal with white goods.
Transform Furniture will use the furniture to support referrals. this is where we furnish accommodation of those without the means to buy new furniture.
We also sell furniture in other shop on Dundee's Victoria Road at very competitive prices. Some donations are also "upcycled" by volunteers giving new purpose to "unfashionable" pieces of furniture and unique pieces can be sold via our Etsy shop.
Nothing, collections are completely free.
Yes, when you request a collection, you will be asked it you wish to make a Gift Aid donation. If you're a UK taxpayer, you can make your donation worth 25% more.
