Sofa Wise is a furniture recycling charity set up to benefit people in the borough of Wellingborough, to include Rushden, Raunds, Stanwick, Earls Barton, Wollaston and surrounding villages. Sofa Wise is a not- for- profit organization and volunteers are essential to ensure that the project operates successfully.The principal aim of Sofa Wise is to recycle good quality furniture that is no  longer needed, and make it available at an affordable cost to those in receipt of benefit.

 

 

 This philosophy not only brings together those who wish to donate furniture and those looking to furnish a home but also helps the environment by extending the lifespan of natural resources.

 

 Background

 Sofa Wise was officially launched on the 10th January 2003., Operating from it's 6,400 square foot warehouse on the corner of Gordon Road and Grant Road in Wellingborough.  Sofa Wise comes under the WISE charity ( Wellingborough Integrated Social Enterprises ) The project runs with a manager and a team of willing volunteers.  The Sofa Wise van is commonly seen in and around Wellingborough & Rushden delivering and collecting furniture.  The project has a team of trustees to oversee the whole running of the scheme, and has relied heavily on funding from its supporters, however in 2015 it was announced that all funding would be withdrawn for the year 2016.  About this time WISE took on the responsibility of the aleady operational Heartlands Mediation.  A local neighbour hood dispute mediation service. All our Mediators are qualified volunteers.  WISE aims to keep both services running to the best of it's ability to enable local people to live as comfortably as possible.
