Position in organisation
What does your organisation do?
SOFA Project was born in Bristol in 1980 as the 'Shifting old Furniture' Project and has grown and developed ever since. What started as one man and his van now consists of two shops (one in Bristol and one in Weston -Super-Mare), supported by 4 lorries and vans, a workshop, a warehouseand 36 staff, volunteers and work placements. All electrical goods sold by SOFA are cleaned and tested and are covered by guarantee. <br><br> The project serves four client groups; those who wish to donate unwanted furniture and white goods, those who wish to buy such itmes, those whom we help back tino employment, and everyone else, since we all benefit from SOFA's diversion of waste material from landfill (approx. 500 tons of waste is diverted each year, thus reducing environmental damage and reducing the harmful effects of carbon dioxide and methane gas.)
