Cambridge Re-Use is a volunteer based service, helping those in our community who face difficulty furnishing their homes. We are a community based furniture re-use store

It is thanks to the generosity of our donors and a dedicated team of volunteers that enables our service to help hundreds of people on low income every year


We could not offer our customers the excellent range of good quality furniture without the goodwill of our donors and volunteers


Referrer quotes
I've supported many of our tenants to live independently with the help of Cambridge Re-Use. One of our tenants was worried about living in a flat by herself, but after choosing curtains, a white leather sofa, shelves and lots of other furniture over a period of months, she was able to make a positive and happy move and continues to live independently. She says thanks to Cara, Jake, Mark, Lee and all the staff for being so friendly, patient and supportive - God bless you all

Transforming Homes Changing Lives

We love Cambridge Re-Use! Many of our families have lost their belongings as they had to flee their homes following domestic abuse. Having a source of affordable, quality furniture is vital in helping them to set up their new home and start again. We are grateful to this charity for the support and kindness they show our families. Thank You!

Cambridge Re-Use really helped to stretch the budget for one of our young Mums recently when she moved into a new property with her young daughter. She was able to find a bed with a mattress in good condition and paint to redecorate her new home. We have always found staff at Cambridge Re-Use really helpful especially when organizing delivery of big items. Thanks Cambridge Re-Use

The Parents at Young Parent Project

We have been working with Cambridge Re-Use since 2009, to date 60 of our tenants have been helped by this successful partnership. By providing a small repayable grant to our tenants we have been able to help our tenants move into their new homes with the basic essentials they need. Tenants have really appreciated this help and they are amazed at the quality and variety that Cambridge Re-Use supply
