Community Waste, Re-use and Training

Petrina Mayson

Business Cornerstones’ Adopted Charity

Petrina Mayson is the CEO of Furniture Now!, a leading community waste, re-use and training organisation helping as many people as possible access learning, skills development and household affects thereby reducing society’s negative environmental impact and building social inclusion.

The charity has a constantly changing stock of beautiful furniture from a wide variety of sources including brand new stock (often end of line and hence very good value) as well as pre-loved/refurbished stock. There will be something to suit every taste and budget.

Additionally, training is central to all we do at Furniture Now! – we work closely with our trainees to get them the skills they need to progress but the public can also access our courses – many for free.

Furniture Now! is open Monday to Thursday (9.30 AM to 4.30 PM) and Friday-Saturday (9.30 AM to 4 PM). Furniture Now! is a registered charity offering a range of services for the disadvantaged in our society. Our main areas of expertise include: supplying low cost essential electrical items, household and office furniture; training to learn new skills and increase employment chances; employment, volunteer training programmes and environmental reuse.
