How to Access Low-Cost Furniture and Electrical Appliances

Our charity supports households from across the Gateshead Borough, helping them to lead safe, settled and comfortable home lives during times of hardship. This is made possible thanks to the generosity of residents who donate furniture and appliances to us, which we collect free of charge in and around Tyne and Wear.

We have no strict eligibility criteria in place at Foundations to access our low-cost items. Our aim is to support any household that is experiencing furniture poverty, for any reason*. Many of the households we help are in receipt of benefits due to low income, but we also help lots of households that are not receiving a benefit but might be struggling financially for other reasons.

There is no need to make an appointment to view our charity’s furniture showrooms. Call in any time between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday.

We also have furniture and appliances that anyone can buy on Facebook Marketplace. Each sale on Marketplace supports our charity, so we can continue to help local households in need.

To find us on Facebook Marketplace, go to Marketplace and search for “Foundations Furniture”.

We hope that our website provides you with everything you need to help you to get to know us better, but if not, please do not hesitate to:

  • Call us on 0191 477 8337
  • Pop in to see us for a chat and to have a look around. We’re in Units 1-6 on Teams Craft Workshops, Askew Road West, Teams, Gateshead, NE8 2PB.

* We reserve the right to refuse a sale if we believe a beneficiary is planning to resell the items they buy.
