Furniture Reuse Network LogoWhy join the Furniture Re-use Network (FRN)? 

 The Furniture Re-use Network (FRN) charity is the only UK-wide body concerned with helping re-use charities and social enterprises to alleviate material poverty of the poorest and most disadvantaged members of our society. Waste reduction is a huge and important benefit of our work, but addressing social need and inequalities is our core mission.


We work nationally so that you can act locally, and we provide a range of specialist services, which are not available from local or regional infrastructure organisations. We are the voice of the social economy re-use sector.
Our strength is in our national coverage and our dedicated professional staff. We have a specialist team of business, financial, human resource, quality management, social policy, waste policy, auditing, and re-use technical experts with many years' experience across the private, public and civil society sectors. No other network, association or agency in the UK can offer this range of skill, expertise and experience.
We share your passion and drive to help the most vulnerable people in society. We actively support your need to be financially sustainable organisations in order to help more people.
This membership benefits pack will give you a detailed understanding of the work we do and the benefits we offer our members at the different levels.

A step up from the Core membership level, CorePlus provides you access to new  items from approved suppliers at discounted FRN prices. You can have peace of mind knowing that you have access to the quality stock you need. Although ARC members automatically get priority for nation-wide clearances, you may also benefit from these opportunities depending on their availability and location throughout the year.

ARC stands for Approved Reuse Centre. ARC membership is suitable for you if your organisation would benefit from a thorough audit and assessment of its quality management policies and procedures. It automatically provides you access to new, graded and quality pre-used items from major high street retailers and manufacturers at discounted FRN prices through partnerships created and nurtured by the FRN.

FRN auditing assessments are recognised by the Environment Agency and ISO 9001 for meeting the requirements of independent internal audits, and PAS 141 for WEEE.
