Furniture Plus is the largest furniture re-use, recycling and repair organisation in Fife and has continued to grow steadily since its inception in December 2001. Our main aim is to combat poverty and social exclusion, especially homelessness. We do this through our core business activity of re-using, recycling and repairing furniture and other household goods which may have otherwise gone to landfill. This benefits local communities, both socially and environmentally, whilst generating core income to sustain the project. We work throughout Fife, operating from 2 locations in Dysart and Dunfermline.
Furniture Plus is a completely self-sustaining charity which does not receive core grant funding to provide the services that we offer which is why donated items are sold in our shops. All surpluses generated are re-invested into the Charity, with a significant amount set aside each year to provide furniture and other household items free of charge to people in most need.
