Upholsterer

  • VO62093


Description

Tayside Re-Users try their best to avoid ditching furniture in landfill. Some of the household goods we receive require upholstering to make them suitable for resale in our shop. We have a dedicated area for upholstery but the ideal volunteer would be looking to develop their existing upholstery skills.

Organisation aims and objectives

Tayside Re-Users is an environmental reuse and recycling Social Enterprise. Established in 1995 it diverts unwanted items from landfill for reuse and recycling, offers employment, volunteering and training opportunities to young people and others who struggle to secure work and provides low cost or no cost household items to people on fixed or low incomes.
