Essential Needs is a registered local charity that collects good quality furniture, electrical items and other household goods from generous donors and sells them on at nominal cost to those on low income or income based benefits. Many of our clients are excluded from traditional sources of furniture. By providing low cost furniture we help our clients to gain stability and comfort by helping then create a home in which to live. Essential Needs also offers volunteering opportunities for those interested in helping people within their local community. We have opportunities within retail and customer care and collecting and delivering furniture.
