Established by and for unemployed people in Hastings, HFS has been working to help people with low incomes to furnish and equip their homes since 1988.
We collect unwanted but reusable furniture & appliances, preventing them from going to waste in landfill.
Last year we saved over 275 tons of furniture and electricals and helped over 4,000 low-income households.
HFS is a registered charity and award-winning* social enterprise. We do not make a profit from our services in the community. All funds raised help us to keep the service running, provide training for people who are out of work and invest in expanding and improving our services.
