The Melton and District Furniture Project was set up to ensure that anyone in receipt of a state benefit could access inexpensive household furniture and accessories.
This remains its main criteria for customer usage. However it has widened its remit to include people within the Melton Borough and Rutland County Council areas who can show that they are in receipt of a low income, e.g. tax credits, etc.
The Project also allows the General Public to access the furniture.
Anyone having 'emergency needs' such as allocation of housing by the local authorities without having furniture, can be helped via the Project's Referral System. A variety of agencies are recognised as referral bodies through whom a full house, or flat, of furniture can be agreed for a total cost of £200.00. This covers homelessness, fire, flood, or similar emergency circumstances. If you feel that you would qualify for this part of the Project's service, then please speak to the agency dealing with your situation; or, get in touch with the Project and detail your particular needs and circumstances.
If the total of your purchases is £30.00 or more, it will qualify for free delivery. If your purchase does not total £30.00 you are responsible for making your own collection arrangements, or making the amount reach £30.00.
If you live outside the main areas of benefit, namely Melton Borough Council and Rutland County Council areas, you can still purchase items from the Project but you will be expected to make your own collection arrangements.
The Project WILL NOT deliver outside of its main areas of benefit as shown above.
Items being purchased must be paid for in cash at the time of selection.
Deposits CANNOT be accepted. Items purchased must be cleared from the Project as soon as possible after payment.
We now accept the following credit/debit cards as a form of payment;
- Maestro (UK),
- Mastercard Debit,
- Visa Debit,
- Visa Electron.
Cheques are NOT accepted by the project as a form of payment.
The Project aims to make its services as easy as possible for everyone, if you have a particular concern, then speak with one of the volunteers or staff at the Project, an answer will be forthcoming which will assist you.
Stock changes daily and items cannot be reserved, there is a heavy demand and if you are looking for a particular furniture item, you are advised to visit the Project regularly. Collections are carried out Monday through Friday and no one knows until the items are brought to the Project what the quality or style might be.
