Furniture Help Scheme
CDFHS as we are now known has supported people over the entire County of Durham over the course of the pandemic. Like every other third sector organization we have had our own struggles and hurdles to overcome over the last couple of years.
However, we are proud to say despite lengthy periods of closure, and many staff being on furlough we still provided our service to those in the direst need across the county.
CDFHS for example have supported the homeless and rough sleepers in conjunction with teams of support workers from Durham County Council. We have delivered for this and Welfare Assistance and Humanitarian Projects over 1800 beds, all brand new and made to our order. Thatâ€™s enough for putting to bed two battalions of troops!
Due to the still lingering effects of the pandemic and all of us catching COVID just recently we are now revising our opening hours and we hope to grow in conjunction with the recovery continuing.
We are harshly aware of the effects of the cost of living crunch, we are still offering the full range of electrical goods in both new and second hand, brown furniture and soft furnishings. We start at ÂŁ45.00 for a two seater sofa.
We can help with discounts for multi buy purchases and we will have special offers coming soon on new electrical, for regular customers and those spending over ÂŁ30.00 we will be offering up to a 1 THIRD off selected new Washers, cookers and Fridge freezers. Items we will release on occasion over the summer.
Watch the CDFHS website and our posters and display screens at the units for these â€śGuerilla Salesâ€ť details.
CDFHS stock a range of new beds now by â€śDreamodeâ€ť, a new single bed costing ÂŁ100.00 and a new double from ÂŁ145.00.
