We work with multiple agencies and local governments to provide home furniture and white goods free for these programs. The Bower also undertakes the delivery of courses to support the development of knowledge and skills across communities to upskill communities in repairing, recycling and upcycling furniture and further contributing to the reduction of items into landfill.
