About The Benjamin Foundation
About This Shop
For over 25 years’ children, young people and families across Norfolk and Suffolk have been supported by The Benjamin Foundation to overcome big challenges in their lives.
Each night we accommodate 100 vulnerable young people, equating to over 40,000 safe nights sleep a year for local young people. They can finally feel safe from youth homelessness. We are proud to be the regional partner for the End Youth Homelessness campaign.
Each week 150 young people access our emotional wellbeing support. In the last year this equates to 7,500 emotional wellbeing support sessions improving their mental health, increasing their self-esteem and to finally feel understood.
Each year over 250 young people attended our youth work in the community to gain new life skills, expand their horizons and finally feel confident.
Overall 2,000 local children and young people every year finally feel hopeful of a better future because of the work of The Benjamin Foundation.
The Benjamin Foundation are deeply connected to the local community, employing over 220 people in Norfolk and Suffolk.
We have furniture stores in Norwich, Holt, Dereham and King’s Lynn selling good quality, pre-loved household items as well as brand new beds and white goods too. We also operate Re-use Shops at Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds Recycling Centres in partnership with FCC Environment and Suffolk County Council. There’s usually a wide variety of stock, including sofas, chairs, dining tables, wardrobes, chests of drawers and much more, often available on the day at very competitive prices. We sometimes have more unique and unusual items in store too!
By offering used furniture for sale, our stores also give local people a way of passing on furniture in a sustainable way and reducing waste.
The profit our stores generate helps to fund our work with local children, young people and families – so supporting our stores means you’re helping vulnerable young people in Norfolk and Suffolk to finally feel hopeful of a better future.
