Sofa Wise is a local charity based in Wellingborough since 2003 and was primarily set up to provide furniture and other household goods to the local community who are in receipt of benefits. Our customers can be people who have experienced homelessness, domestic abusive relationships, poor mental health and addictions and are moving into independent living for the first time and who often have very little if nothing at all.
Our name "SOFA" wise stands for Spreading Our Furniture Around
We think we will come & pick up your donations QUICKER than ANY other charity in East Northants.
