Central Aid now provides furniture, appliances, furnishings and flooring to the homeless and referred clients going through a crisis throughout Bucks. Our band of volunteers work in all parts of the operation: doing deliveries and collections on the van, PAT test electrical appliances, assist clients in the furniture warehouse or charity shop, sort, clean, repair and display donated goods, help with online activity, scheduling, marketing, administration and facilities. Long-term unemployed volunteers receive work experience and skills each year.
We have been able to offer paid work to some when the opportunity arises.
Referrals come from Buckinghamshire County social services, hospitals, housing associations, local crisis, disease, children’s, women’s, ex-forces and refugee support charities
