Did you know … furniture can be up-cycled, reused and purchased, thanks to Futureworks NY!
We renovate and up-cycle pre-owned furniture at our onsite workshop. Renovated items can be purchased and find forever homes in the borough.
The project is run through the Community Works scheme, funded by the Big Lottery and is unique to the Scarborough area.
Community Works is open to those aged 18 to 25 years of age, and we have small, welcoming groups in which learners acquire new skills and confidence in a supportive environment. One of the key areas of learning is furniture restoration and sometimes the piece that’s being renovated is completely unrecognisable as it’s been totally transformed. Our Community Works team includes Jamie who is never happier than when a paintbrush is in his hand!
