The National Housing Federation and The Furniture Re-use Network have produced this new booklet outlining how social landlords and their tenants can reap enormous benefits by teaming up with a local furniture re-use organisation. The "Win-Win" handbook details how housing providers can refer customers to furniture re-use organisations, and how they can form or support these innovative community projects. The publication shows how furniture re-use organisations can also improve the chances of new tenants settling quickly into their new surroundings when moving into a property after being homeless, in care or living in temporary accommodation.
