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.

Please note; Our registered office is now:

West Quay, The Docks

Donate

To help in Creating a Better Community, FRP collects items that householders no longer want, and make them available to others who really need them.
We are always extremely grateful for any donations that we receive – though we do ask items are not too damaged and are fit for re-use.

LEADER Programme

In 2016 FRP were awarded a grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) for our Tewkesbury Vehicle Project.
This enabled us to purchase a new van for the Tewkesbury outlet that we opened earlier in the same year.

Thanks to the generosity of the EAFRD supported LEADER programme, we are now able to stock, collect and deliver quality reuse household items to those in need in the Tewkesbury area.
