The Now! Charity Group is dedicated to the reduction, reuse and recycling of household waste, whilst also delivering life-changing community experiences which achieve social transformation for people at risk of exclusion.
Our vision is that the poorest people in the South East have their dignity restored and feel connected to their community. Without dignity it’s difficult to rise up, without basic skills and confidence it’s difficult to become independent, and without connection it’s difficult to feel safe, valued and included.
We impact their lives in multiple positive ways, often triggered by a single piece of essential furniture. We provide donated furniture to meet their immediate physical needs, while using our furniture revenue to deliver volunteering opportunities for the vulnerable and basic skills training and community courses that tackle the underlying causes of their poverty and marginalisation. It’s a highly resourceful approach where each piece of furniture saved from waste initiates a chain of value that creates far reaching ripples of social, financial and educational impact.
