Help to make somebody else’s house a home by donating furniture.

At New Start Highland, we help people to get back on their feet after experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity. A key part of this is giving people the items they need to make their house a liveable, comfortable home. This is only possible because of the generous donations that we receive.

If you’re clearing out household items, consider donating them to us. As long as they are in safe, good condition and we can make use of them, you can drop them off at any of our outlets. Larger items we can pick up for free. We can supply them to families and individuals in need or make them available in our outlets. No matter whether you’re donating small items like toasters or large ones such as sofas, you are helping to make somebody’s house a home and we appreciate all donations given.

When you donate furniture and homewares to New Start Highland, you’re helping people to get back on their feet as well as helping the environment by preventing goods from going to landfill. Your donated items will be reused, repaired, upcycled and recycled.

  • Usable furniture*
