Welcome To Shropshire Community Project

We support those in our local community that are in need of help. We believe that no-one should ever face a problem on their own. All of the surplus profits that we make from our retail shops (online and in-store) go towards helping those that need us most, and making Shropshire a brilliant community for all.

Shropshire Community Project is a place where you can shop for new, high quality, and great value furniture, with a social heart. We are not a ‘charity shop’ in the traditionally sense, and we are more than just a furniture retailer; we are a charity in our own right and Community Interest Company.

We are passionate about what we do, and you can shop with confidence knowing that the money you spend will benefit others.

Shropshire Community Project Overview

In addition to donating the profits from our stores to local projects and charitable causes, we also donate furniture to local homeless charities and funds to Crisis Support charities to ensure that no-one in the community of Shropshire goes without the basic essentials to keep their families sheltered, fed and clothed. We also donate our time and facilities to support local projects and charities in their fundraising efforts.

As a social enterprise we are instrumental in reducing the amount of reusable furniture, clothes and bric-a-brac that are going to landfill waste.  Over the last 24 months we have prevented over 200 tonnes of items being sent to landfill and have served more than 2700 customers. We collect donations free of charge from anywhere across Shropshire.

From our retail outlets we also run our employability programmes, both on and offline. These programmes are designed to be a platform for those people looking to secure work after long-term unemployment, or those who are paid less than the ‘Real’ Living Wage of £8.75, those in the volunteer community, and those who are simply looking to upskill themselves for a brighter future.

Our friendly structured scheme helps support people with low confidence to regain forgotten skills through targeted coaching in a variety of areas such as CV writing, interview techniques and sales and marketing, with the aim of helping them secure permanent long term employment.  Our programme provides a good foundation for a better community as it inspires service users to better themselves through supporting other people in crisis.  In 12 months we have supported over 280 people through our employability support programme, with 72 people returning to long-term employment.
