Welcome to FRP - Creating a Better Community

Furniture Recycling Project (FRP) is a charity run by a small team of staff and a group of willing volunteers.

We aim to re-use furniture, electrical goods and household items for the benefit of the community, and to help reduce social exclusion throughout the County of Gloucestershire.

We achieve this by collecting useable items directly from the public, free of charge. The items are then inspected, to ensure they meet safety and cleanliness standards.

These collected items are then sold through FRP stores to supply safe, clean, and affordable, re-use furniture and tested electrical items at reasonable cost throughout the County of Gloucestershire.
