Social Value

End Furniture Poverty is the campaigning arm of Furniture Resource Centre, working to tackle Furniture Poverty by raising awareness of the issue, carrying out research to understand how it can affect people and developing possible solutions, and working with partners to help those in crisis.

We are currently carrying out a research project looking at the provision of furnished tenancies and how they can help people in crisis and on low incomes to create a home, with contributions from One Manchester, Stockport Homes, Bolton Council, Northwards Housing and Clarion Housing Group.

We are also working with Oldham Council and a range of charities and support agencies on a Coordinated Crisis Support project, aimed at bringing to together crisis support and helping local people to get the help they so desperately need.

We regularly liaise with Greater Manchester Poverty Action to share our research and coordinate our work and are planning a project with them in the year ahead to look at the provision of Local Welfare Support across the region.

We also work with Clarion Housing Group on a flooring project and hope to expand this to other housing associations and local authorities across Greater Manchester in the coming months.
