SOFA Project, The

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 Knowle), supported by 4 lorries and vans, a workshop, a warehouse and 36 staff, volunteers and work placements. All electrical goods sold by SOFA are bought from retail, tested and refurbished and are covered by guarantee. The project serves four client groups; those who wish to donate unwanted furniture and white goods, those who wish to buy such items, those whom we help back in to 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.)
