Hampshire County Council works with local furniture reuse providers to help eligible people obtain affordable furniture, white goods and electrical items.

If you need support

Please contact:

  • Hampshire Local Welfare Assistance to discuss your circumstances

  • Tel: 0300 330 1150 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday

A Local Welfare Assistance Adviser will be able to discuss with you your concerns and circumstances with you. This will be dealt with confidentially and with a view to helping you to identify suitable ways and means of getting support, help or overcoming the issues you have.

Local Welfare Assistance has access to many local organisations who may be able to help as well as having the expertise and experience to be able to help you better understand what you can do to resolve some crises.

The Local Welfare Assistance Advisers will not be able to give you cash, goods or make decisions about potential items you need.

 

Get involved by making a donation

The HFRN however are able to collect suitable* items such as reusable furniture (beds, tables, chairs, sofas, wardrobes, bookcases) and working electrical items (fridges and freezers) along with crockery, kitchen equipment and curtains.

*Suitable items may have to meet certain standards and will need to be clean and in good working order.

These items will then be made available to people who wish to purchase them or will be provided to families and/or individuals who are genuinely in need.

This project relies on local organisations and services agreeing to work with Hampshire to identify people in genuine need. These organisations are then able to contact the HFRN when items have been identified as critical for an individual and / or their family.
