What is it?
Care Zone is an innovative furniture recycling and employability skills training project that is run by Kingsgate Community Church in Peterborough.
Furniture Recycling Project
- Families needing Care Zone’s support are referred by local statutory and community agencies who identify that the family is facing exceptional pressure and needs some practical help. Typically the families being helped by Care Zone’s furniture recycling project are homeless or in homeless hostels, staying with friends or are survivors of domestic violence.
- Last year more than 2000 people from a very diverse range of ethnic and faith backgrounds received emergency, practical support from Care Zone and recycled furniture was provided for 700 properties.
