North Staffordshire Furniture Mine

North Staffordshire Furniture Mine
The Furniture Mine, through a variety of methods, re-distributes good quality furniture from those who have and no longer need it to those who need it but don't have it.

It is our belief:

  • That a home is more than a brick shell so each item of furniture we supply will help our clients turn their house into a home.
  • As the furniture we supply is donated by members of the public, we are pleased to recognise the fact that every item is as individual as you are.
  • This also reflects the individuality of every client and member of the team.

Address: Unit 2, Carlton House Estate, Registry Street, Stoke on Trent. ST4 1PU.
Opening hours: 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
Phone for furniture donations: 01782 846111.

How we help:

It's not always financially viable to work full time whilst living in a hostel, so being a volunteer at The Furniture Mine allows me to be part of something positive and productive. Being part of a team is always good for the soul and it has helped me regain a sense of self-worth and my confidence is definitely on the up as a result. I am also one of many people within the community who are looking to move out of temporary accommodation to start a new life so I can really appreciate the benefits of the service that The Furniture Mine provides.
It is also very heartwarming to meet so many people within the community who are willing to help others through their donations, and their willingness to give has restored my faith in humanity.

How we help:

H came to us last year as someone in really dire circumstances. He and his family had had to flee Kenya, and arrived in the Uk with next to nothing, and were denied state assistance. We were able to sort them out with a furniture pack and , subsequently, other items. Having been given the right to stay and work in the UK, but with poor English and no benefits, H became a volunteer here. A great lad, he gained experience on the vans (the driver's mate) and in the shop. His English (and map reading!) improved swiftly and he was able to kit out his family's new home. After five months he got a job as a baggage handler at Manchester Airport with a shining reference from us. He still pops in from time to time to say hello.
We help numerous other clients who may come to us from women's refuges, hospitals, social services, CAB's, RSL's and many from other voluntary organisations.
