The Glossopdale Furniture Project is a registered charity based in Glossop, Derbyshire (No: 1118353), a company limited by guarantee (No: 1080338) supported by Derbyshire County Council, High Peak Borough Council, the Clinical Commissioning Group and various Charitable Trusts. Covering the whole of the High Peak area it was set up in 1997 when it became obvious of the serious need for a charitable project of this nature.
In 1996, following an increasing number of requests received by both statutory and voluntary organisations from people on low incomes in need of good quality, affordable furniture, a member of staff from the Glossop Volunteer Bureau and a Community Worker from The Jericho Project, Gamesley (a large council housing estate in Glossop), established a steering group consisting of those agencies being contacted. Part of the research carried out during 1996 in identifying that need also connected with offers from members of the public seeking to donate furniture – and so the Project became a reality.

The majority of people it helps are referred from social services, housing charities, women’s refuges and many other local organisations who support individuals and families in need. For around 80 households each year the Project provides free Emergency Furniture Packs to people who have been homeless and given a new tenancy where the property has no essential items. Depending on need, a basic furniture pack can consist of a bed, sofa, chest of drawers, wardrobe, fridge, bedding, crockery, microwave, kettle and toaster to help set up their new home. The Project is the only voluntary organisation within the High Peak offering such a service and is in constant demand. It is seen by the statutory and voluntary agencies who use the Project as a lifeline for their service users.
