Ladywood Furniture project
Founded in 1989 Ladywood furniture Project has been serving the people of Birmingham for almost 30 years, helping people from disadvantaged backgrounds furnish their homes at a low cost, recycling 500 tonnes of furniture that would have otherwise ended up on landfill.
Who are The Ladywood Furniture Project?
Formed during the mid 1980’s when the City Council were re-housing and clearing the slums in central Birmingham. Ladywood Furniture Project sought to help those in the new accommodation with no furniture. It looks to support the elderly and disadvantaged by providing them with low cost furniture with free delivery.
Ladywood Furniture Project recycles an estimated 500 tonnes of furniture every year that would otherwise end up in landfill. All the furniture is donated from people all over Birmingham and is collected for free.
Every year on average 2000 people visit Ladywood Furniture Project and buy low cost furniture. Clearing out your spare bedroom why not give Ladywood Furniture Project a call?
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
Ladywood Furniture Project’s key objective is to collect enough donated furniture to meet the needs of people coming to them for help.
£2000 would provide travel expense support for an additional 3 volunteers per week. This would in turn allow Ladywood Furniture to increase their deliveries from just 2 days a week to 5 allowing them to recycle more furniture and help even more people in Birmingham.
