DONATING TIME OR MONEY
I would like to give my skills and time to support families in need. How do I volunteer?
We are always delighted to hear from you if you would like to volunteer for us. As a small, new charity we particularly welcome applications from tradespeople who can paint, decorate or help with homes; volunteers with fundraising or PR skills; photographers, interpreters and so on. We are also keen to hear from people able to help out with sorting and manual lifting in our warehouse.
If you are interested please fill out our volunteer registration form. We will keep your details on file and get in touch when relevant volunteering opportunities come up.
I would like to make a monetary donation or discuss corporate sponsorship.
Running Furnishing Futures costs a lot of money due to the cost of storage and logistics. We rely on donations, grants and other fund raising to be able to support the families we serve.
Are you a registered charity?
Furnishing Futures is a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (charity no 1196498).
