Social

  • To help local people overcome some of the effects of poverty on their lives by providing a source of quality furniture and household goods at low cost.

Economic

  • To provide a range of sustainable supported employment, training and volunteering opportunities which promote social inclusion for those furthest from the labour market.

  • To work collaboratively with other agencies and organisations with a similar remit.
