HOW WE HELP

We work with more than 40 social work agencies in the City of Sydney. Since 2012, we have provided thousands of pieces of furniture, whitegoods and other household items to over 500 people, significantly reducing the amount of unwanted material going to landfill. Our clients are often setting up home after a major disruption in their lives, a period of homelessness, arriving in Australia as a refugee, leaving a home as a result of domestic violence or rehab or from a period in detention.
