ABOUT US

Our mission

Duhallow REVAMP is a furniture recycling and re-use initiative which was established with 3 key purposes; providing sheltered training and employment opportunities, helping our environment by reducing landfill and fly tipping and providing quality up-cycled furniture at low cost to pensioners, low income families, people who are marginalised and unemployed because of mental health difficulties and other reasons.

Duhallow Revamp renews furniture giving it a new lease of life and actively promotes waste prevention, reuse and recycling, whilst providing training and skills opportunities for the unemployed. The project is currently operating through the Tús Community Activation Scheme with participants learning new skills in furniture repair and upcycling, and also the Community Services Programme creating employment opportunities based on a Social Enterprise Model, for those who need supported employment.

OUR WORK

Duhallow REVAMP accepts unwanted furniture of a reasonable standard from people who wish to kindly donate items. Furniture is collected directly from the public for a nominal fee. The donated items are brought into the Duhallow REVAMP workshop where they are then inspected and screened before restoration and repair is carried out by the REVAMP team. We also provide a refurbishment service for those who wish to have their old pieces restored and refurbished and then returned to them. From budget buys to sought-after vintage pieces, Duhallow REVAMP has something for everyone. The community service operates a tiered pricing system whereby those in most need (which includes anyone receiving a means tested social welfare benefit, and students) are able to buy goods at a lower price than the general public.
