About this cause
We help the most disadvantaged in the community, supplying furniture for people in hardship to turn their house into a home. We provide training for people with mental ill health and learning difficulties, giving them social and technical skills in renovating or upcycling furniture, working in the shop or out on the collection and delivery van. This reduces the amount of furniture going to landfill.
How this cause brings people in the community together
During the pandemic more people are suffering financial hardship and mental ill health, and those with learning difficulties have suffered more than most. The work 9 Lives does will help these groups, providing quality furniture to people in most need and helping those with mental problems back into society. We know from the local council that our services are now needed more than ever.
