Furniture scheme trial helps those in need

Posted on 20 November 2019

Flagship Homes has partnered with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to successfully trial a furniture scheme to provide vouchers for formerly homeless customers that need necessary household items to help them to settle into their new homes.

The six week trial saw 22 customers receive vouchers worth a total of £3,599, that they could redeem at BHF stores for furniture and appliances.

One of the customers to benefit was Miss Mongan, who was recently rehomed by Flagship after being in refuge. As a single parent of two young children receiving Universal Credit, she found it difficult to pay rent and save for a much-needed washing machine, which meant she was having to hand wash her children’s clothes and bedding.

Miss Mongan said: “It was a Godsend. I cannot thank Flagship enough. The washing machine has helped me out of big hole.”
