Who We Are

Furniture MineFurniture Mine is Staffordshire's leading furniture re-use charity that helps families set up home through low cost second hand furniture and council referrals.

We are a division of Aspire Housing. This means we work closely with leading companies in Stoke-On-Trent and Newcastle-Under-Lyme including PM Training, a local training provider giving young people the skills, experience and qualifications they need to progress into jobs. Our work with PM Training allows us to offer volunteering opportunities, apprenticeships and further training for our staff.

As a local charity, all furniture donations that we receive are re-used to benefit people in North Staffordshire, helping them set up home or find that piece of furniture that completes their living room. 

Each year Furniture Mine:

  • Collects 5,000 donated items
  • Helps 3,000 customers
  • Prevents 450 tonnes of waste going to landfill

If you want to see the type of furniture we stock, please see our second hand furniture page or visit us at our warehouse or shop
