About Us

Hopeworx was started as a community outreach project from a church, Christian Growth Centre Rayleigh to seek to find the needs of its community and find ways to alleviate these needs.

Initially we concentrated on emergency food packs connecting with various agencies and organisations who collect these packs on behalf of their clients.

It soon became clear that there is a need within the Rayleigh area of quality, affordable used furniture so the Hopeworx Reuse Centre was opened in 2012.

We have a 6000 sq ft warehouse that is open to the general public to come along and browse around our stock and purchase. We accept donations of furniture and appliances and can offer a free of charge collection service, as long as the items comply with our minimum requirements. Any member of the public who has evidence that they are receiving certain benefits will be able to purchase some items at a reduced cost. We also work in partnership with other agencies and organisations to help those that find themselves in crisis and are in urgent need of furniture and appliances.

As well as providing affordable, quality, used furniture the Centre also provides a service to the community in preventing such items from being sent to landfill, preserving our environment.

There are opportunities for volunteers in many areas of the project - pop in or call us to discuss how you may be able to help. We also aim to help the long-term unemployed to regain confidence, experience and also hopefully the acquiring of a skill to enable a successful application for employment.

We were approached by various supermarkets and retail outlets about collecting surplus food. The Hopeworx Food Hub was set up to collect this food and to arrange for various charities in the area to collect and use this food. This also provides opportunities for volunteers to get involved.
