Transform Community Development opened the doors of its Transform Furniture Project in December 2006. The community based project works towards overcoming poverty and social exclusion and is driven by 3 main aims:
Transform operates by collecting donations of household items from the local public, free of charge. The items are inspected, and where required, refurbished to ensure they meet safety and cleanliness standards. Items are resold, or sold to people referred by local agencies or through service level agreements formed with voluntary/statutory housing agencies. People visit Transform Community Development to select the items they want and need to help make a house their home.
The project has had a significant social, economic and environmental impact on the local community, and has received considerable praise and support from those benefiting from its service.
