It’s Giving Tuesday –  a chance to come together and support causes that are close to your heart. We’d really appreciate it if you could join us on Giving Tuesday and give your time, a donation, or an item for resale, to help us continue our work to support those who have previously experienced homelessness and social exclusion.

Our New Life Shop on Crouch Street and Emmaus Works on Osborne Street will be reopening on December 2, but there are also lots of other ways that you can support our work.

💚 Donate furniture items

We welcome donations of furniture, but at this time we are unable to accept drop-off donations. Please call our Transport Office to check that the item is suitable and to arrange a convenient time for collection.

💚 Arrange a house clearance

Choose our full house clearance for removal of all items, or our cherry pick service, where we remove items that we can sell in our shops. Whatever you choose, we’ll help recycle your goods or dispose of your non-recyclable items. Find out more.

💚 Make a cash donation

A donation of £15 could help one of our companions feel more valued with a counselling session.
