Community Furniture Aid

Furnishing Homes for the Most in Need

Charity Number: 1163913

About us

Community Furniture Aid is a family run charity, run and manned by unpaid volunteers in Bridgend County, which fully furnishes homes for people running away from domestic abuse, the homeless and those suffering from hidden poverty amongst many others. We collect donated items from the public who are either upgrading their furniture or from house clearances. The only items we do not supply are large white goods such as cookers, fridge freezers and washing machines. Our stock changes on a daily basis so it depends what we have available in storage.

Imagine that for some reason you could not return to your home and you were allocated a totally empty property with concrete floors and bare walls and you had to refurnish it on a tight budget. This is what CFA does every week. Within a few hours we can transform an empty property into a home at a low cost so as to give our clients a safe place with all the essentials needed to live.

Services we offer

  • Volunteering with training
  • Furniture packs and guidance for other help
  • Delivery of individual items if stock available
  • Sympathetic house clearances (not rubbish)
  • Collection of individual items

  • It was wonderful to see how household goods that previously may have gone to landfill can help people rebuild their lives.

  • It's been a very exhausting few days, but we done it with your help and generosity. There is a family sitting comfortable in their home, they can now call it a home and not just a house. All the furniture looks fabulous, the place looks cosy. They keep telling us it is a miracle and it is!! Thank you for the good work you do. You are very special kind caring loving people.

  • Thank you so, so much for your help in supplying a bed base. It was an emergency that we just heard someone was coming out of hospital today – you’ve been a life saver!

  • It was so great to meet you and to see the great work you are doing for people in need. I very much enjoyed the time we spent together and I was very impressed with all the good work you do. You fill a gap which really help people getting back on track again.

  • Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the furnishings you provided today which is helping my daughter and her baby son start a new life. Your organisation is such a positive inspiration to people, young and old, who struggle to build new lives. You do this all yourselves without any gain yourselves and your volunteers are truly an inspiration and help to restore faith in others. Once again a huge thank you for everything and may your organisation continue to be available to help all those in need as without angels like you people would be struggling even more.
