Second Opportunities provides
low cost Furniture Reuse Service aimed at helping the homeless and most disadvantaged progress into and sustain their tenancies. The Services key aims are:
- To relieve the poverty of the most marginalized sections of society through the Re-use of essential household

an attractive alternative to perfectly good furniture which currently being dumped and in the process
make a impact on the amount being diverted from landfill.
Help us Make Houses
into HomesTo support our service users, we need a continuous supply of the following:Lounge suites, beds, bedroom furniture, and white goods
such as electric cookers, washing machines, fridges, etc.We are a non profit making organisation and registered charity within Scotland. The charity a was established
in 1992, initially supporting families in the Castlemilk area but has since grown and relocated to our new base at Broomloan
Road in Ibrox. Our Furniture Re-use
Service is funded through the Increase Programme and our own fundraising. We are a primary member of the newly formed Glasgow
Furniture Initiative which aims to see a significant in crease in the quantity of furniture being diverted from landfill and
being made available for re-use to our target client groups.
