The Castle Furniture Project

Founded in 1992, the primary charitable object of Castle Furniture Project is to provide free or low cost household goods to disadvantaged families and individuals to relieve poverty and indebtedness in Fife.

To that end, the project provides the transport and labour to collect donations free of charge from people throughout North and North East Fife. These donations are brought to the warehouse where they are sorted, assessed for condition, repaired where possible, renovated when feasible, and displayed in our warehouse in Cupar.

The project offers marginalised groups opportunities to work in a safe, supportive, inclusive environment. For many who lead chaotic lifestyles it is the first tentative step to leading a more structured life.  Being in a position to help others is a core element of this process and the furniture which the project collects and redistributes enables individuals to help other people who are facing extreme hardship.

It is this hidden element of the projects work that provides a truly inclusive environment that provides a service whereby vulnerable people offer their assistance to others in need whilst delivering a much needed services to the wider community economical, socially and environmentally.

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the systematic and comprehensive testing of electrical appliances. This could be anything from a kettle to a computer. Basically any type of electrical appliance that is powered by a three pin or three phase plug must be maintained safely.
The project also offers an environmental alternative for local householders who have unwanted furniture, electrical appliances and other household items that they no longer want or need.
