Become a charity Board member for the Furniture Scheme

We are looking for committed individuals who want to use their skills and experience to make a difference in local communities.

Since its inception, the Furniture Scheme has become a leading social enterprise and charity in Shropshire. The core objectives at the heart of the organisation are to relieve poverty and eliminate discrimination through the provision of low cost essential household equipment and to protect the environment through the 3Rs – reduce, recycle and reuse. The delivery of the scheme’s core services are made possible by a dynamic and driven approach that has led to the organisation becoming a diverse and innovative flagship social enterprise.

The Furniture Scheme’s ethos is one of equality, enablement and involvement; particular focus is placed on providing opportunities to the unemployed and socially disadvantaged. As a social enterprise, 100% of funds raised are reinvested into the organisation. There are no shareholders or anyone else profiting from our operation; if we manage to make a profit we use this to support growth and help more people. We are always very grateful for any donation whether it’s furniture or cash.

We are keen to hear from you:

  • If you have skills in running a business and want to give something to the wider community, or
  • If your employer wants to encourage you to develop your skills with board level experience, or
  • If you have previous experience as a trustee or at the highest level in a charity or social enterprise.
