Community Transport have worked in partnership with Sandwell Council for many years, providing services throughout the borough for those most in need. The charity works to recycle and resell affordable, quality, used furniture, and new goods, and also to provide accessible passenger transport for community groups and supportive organisations.
Sandwell Council have collaborated with Community Transport to provide these services, but CT are now looking at alternative ways of supporting the local community. One way is in the form of a voucher scheme, which entitles the holder to free a delivery, in one transaction, of purchases made from CT’s West Bromwich furniture store, (located at the entrance of the bus station) to anywhere in Sandwell.
The scheme is accessed via a referral system, and CT have partnered with a wide range of partner organisations across the region, who support people from all backgrounds. These partners have been issued with a number of vouchers, with a unique code, relevant to their own organisation. If they feel that a beneficiary would benefit from having free delivery of goods, the individual is issued with with a voucher to be redeemed in-store.
The objective of the scheme is to enable local residents to have access to affordable furniture in the first place, and also to have a way of their purchases being delivered to their homes without incurring further cost.
