Southampton City And Region Action To Combat Hardship
The DORCAS Project provides basic furniture and household items to individuals and families who are suffering poverty and disadvantage who live in Southampton and the surrounding area. We are often asked to help people who are setting up home without anything. Last financial year (2017 / 18) we helped 1110 adults and 842 children.
This is not a direct access project - everyone we help is referred to us by one of our recognised agencies to ensure that there is a genuine need.
If you would like to donate furniture please contact reception on 023 8077 3132. We are always in need of the following:
- Three Piece Suites (must have the fire safety labels)
- Wardrobes (max 3' wide, 6' high)
- Chests of Drawers
- Tables (drop leaf or gate leg) and chairs
- Bedside Cabinets
- Coffee Tables
- Carpet (not foam backed)
- Crockery and Cutlery
- Kitchen Utensils
