Furniture Service

Riverside Community Trust recognise the need to help those vulnerable people in the local community struggling to start up and maintain a tenancy. This maybe due to various reasons e.g. moving out of homelessness, struggling with addiction, mental health issues etc. The service collects donations of furniture and provides assistance to our friends that use the Care & Share weekly drop-in, in furnishing their new accommodation. The service is provided free of charge, and is run on a voluntary basis with support provided mainly on Tuesday & Wednesday mornings.

We are grateful to South Ayrshire Charitable Trust who have provided our first year funding to employ, David Alexander, our part-time service coordinator to manage the small team of volunteers. For more information, please contact David on 07579 022127 or by email at riverside_church@btconnect.com if;

  • You would like assistance with furniture and to check the availability of what we have in stock.
  • You would like to donate furniture, electrical items, white goods etc, providing that they are in good condition.

If you would like to volunteer for a few hours a week and help with uplifts and deliveries, as long as you are fit and able, David would be pleased to hear from you.
