Foundations Furniture Project

Foundations Furniture was established in 1996 (charity number 1090034) and offers low-cost recycled furniture and electrical items to any household in Gateshead who are experiencing hardship. We avoid having a strict eligibility criteria due to the many different circumstances that households can face which lead to hardship. If you or someone you know in Gateshead is experiencing furniture poverty, we're here to help. 

Foundations also offer a range of new beds and mattressess too, with affordable weekly payment options via NEFirst Credit Union. Our new items are available to anyone, and all sales of our new beds help to support our charity.  

To keep our staff and customers safe during the pandemic, our showroom opens every weekday between 9am and 4pm by appointment only. To make an appointment, please call us on 0191 4778337. 

We collect unwanted, usable furniture free of charge from across Tyne and Wear to help people in hardship.
