Local homeless charity uses Pub Stuff furniture grant to create new space for young people

Young homeless people in Banbury will be able to benefit from a welcoming new counselling room at their local charity, Banbury Young Homeless Project (BYHP), following a stylish furniture donation from local leading contract pub furniture supplier, Pub Stuff Ltd.

Deb Parker, CEO of BYHP was delighted when Pub Stuff Ltd agreed to supply the contract furniture as part of their new Pub Stuff Community Stuff grant scheme in a move to transform ad hoc office space into a valuable resource for one-to-one sessions with young people.

The charity is long established in Banbury having served the community for over 20 years equipping young homeless people in the area with employability skills, training in CV writing, building self-esteem, budgeting and active work experience.

With the final finishing touches to paintwork now complete, the new arrangement of faux leather tub chairs and a chunky wooden coffee tables offers an inviting space for counselling and training sessions.

“Our volunteers, trustees and young people are very impressed with this new space and I think it’s absolutely wonderful” said Deb. “Previously it was an area that didn’t fulfil its full potential, it was not at all comfortable with a couple of odd chairs, a desk and filing cabinet and no defined purpose.”

“The young people we support are all experiencing different stages of vulnerability and need and the help they require is simply not available elsewhere” Deb explained.

Sally Huband, Pub Stuff director, said the community stuff furniture grant scheme was launched to help community groups across the country.

“We want to support community-focused organisations with quality, durable and attractive contract pub furniture to meet their needs when creating meeting points for community support projects,” she said.

“Young people supported by BYHP gain excellent work experience as part the BYHP ‘On a Roll’ project, a pantry based in Church Lane where young people produce top quality sandwiches, soups, cakes and drinks which are sold to local people and businesses. We’re delighted to support Deb and the team with their outstanding work ethic and progress”.
