Furnishing homes and people’s lives
We sell great value, pre-loved furniture for your home and help people improve their life chances by creating ongoing training and employment opportunities for unemployed people and those at risk of homelessness.
Visit our online shop to find bargains and furnish your home on a budget. We have an ever-changing stock of second-hand furniture for living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms and bathrooms.
We’ve found that almost every home has something to offer. If you want to help furnish the lives of others, get in touch. You can either: organise a visit for collection where we will select specific bits and take them away with us completely free of charge or you can set up a free site visit from one of our staff members, to receive a price estimate for a total clearance of all your unwanted items. Please note that the costs of a total clearance are to cover travel, labour wage(s), and disposal.
Furnish aims to make a lasting difference to the lives of unemployed people and those at risk of homelessness. We create a supportive environment to train and upskill individuals to gain work experience and progress in their chosen career. Plus all of the money from furniture sales goes straight back into helping local communities through Learning Links.
Come and visit us at our Kingston Road store: we have a showroom and computers with high speed internet access so you can browse our online shop to your heart’s content. You can also speak to staff about organising a collection, delivery or any other questions you may have.
To arrange a collection call 02393 876666 or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All donated furniture has to be in a good, re-usable quality and any furniture or furnishings that contain upholstery must also comply with British fire safety regulations. Please check whether your furniture has the required fire labels before you book a collection.
Examples of items that need fire labels include beds, headboards, mattresses, sofas, sofa-beds, futons and other convertibles, nursery furniture, scatter cushions, seat pads, pillows and loose and stretch covers for furniture.
We do accept electrical items which pass our safety test. We will test on collection.

Healthwatch Portsmouth’s involvement was crucial in providing a strong voice of challenge to agencies and providing an insight into how the child and their family may have experienced agency actions.
I learnt to deal with things one thing at a time. To relax and take a step back and ‘take a breath’ instead of overreacting all the time.
As an independent organisation Healthwatch Portsmouth was able to voice patient experience, identify learning points and areas for improvement.
I found that my depression and self-esteem have both improved and I now feel much more positive.
Healthwatch identified the mental health difficulties that the daughter was experiencing and her growing anger that this was not being listened to.
We have recently supported one of our customers by helping with her house move. The customer (who will stay anonymous) had arranged an appointment with us for the morning but on the day of the [...]
