Giving Back Project

At Crown Workspace, we help clients ‘give back’ as part of their sustainable clearances by enabling them to donate furniture, IT and electrical equipment to local charities, schools and social enterprises through our Giving Back Project. 

Since 2011, we have facilitated the donation of over 20,000 items of furniture to our charity partners helping those organisations to focus their resources on frontline services.

In 2018/19, we facilitated the donation of over 1,500 items, diverting over 30 tonnes of waste from landfill and saved over 100 tonnes of CO2(e).

What makes the Giving Back Project different?

Making it easy for our clients to give back

The Giving Back Project, which we run as part of our sustainable clearance service, makes it easy for our clients to donate their unwanted items without creating further administration for them. We take the furniture, IT and electrical equipment off their hands and liaise with charity partners to ensure they reach those in need.

We support organisations that help in the following ways:

  • Support the most vulnerable in our society
  • Help the disadvantaged to help themselves
  • Improve the environment within which we live
  • Support education projects in local schools
  • Help those most disadvantaged in our wider world

Certificate of Giving

On completion of projects, we provide our clients with a Certificate of Giving. This gives details of the items donated and the charities supported, demonstrating to their staff and other stakeholders how they have been giving back through their clearance, relocation or refresh project.

Free to our registered charity partners

We operate an online portal of items that are available at no cost to our registered schools, charities and social enterprises, and deliver free of charge for local charity partners.

We also offer our registered charity partners high quality reused or remanufactured office furniture at a discount to help provide a professional working environment at the lowest cost.

Please note that the Giving Back Project is a chargeable service as part of a sustainable clearance. We are unfortunately unable to provide our donation initiative for small amounts of furniture. In this instance, we would recommend you contact the Furniture Reuse Network. 

These are just some of the charities we have helped:

“The number of young people in London made homeless has doubled in just two years. That’s why City YMCA are on a mission to support more of London’s most at-risk young people by increasing the numbers of bed spaces available. This once-loved furniture, reused from clients that the team has moved will help give a hope and a future to homeless young people.”

Chris East, Appeal Director, City YMCA London

“We are extremely grateful for the donation of PCs. We are committed to every individual’s sustainable recovery and this donation will support our clients to rebuild their lives after a period of homelessness. Vital tasks are conducted online, whether this is job searching, banking, GP appointments or even socialising. Ensuring our clients have access to computing, particularly when they move into independent accommodation, is key.”

Simon Young, Project Manager, St Mungo’s

“I have worked with social enterprises supplying recycled office furniture previously, but never with an organisation offering such a comprehensive and personalised service. Thank you so much for all you have done for us.  Everything looks amazing, particularly the reception and waiting area furniture.”

Jan Cunningham, Development Officer, Haven House

“I wanted to thank The Giving Back Project for the superb furniture that was delivered today.  From receiving great storage and desks to little things like having plenty of flipcharts is brilliant.  Visitors to the conference centre continue to be amazed at the generosity and quality of the furniture – it is making a significant difference to us.”

Andy Samways, Director, Suffolk Borders Teaching Alliance
