Nu Life Furniture is a project developed by Cadwyn Housing Association thanks to funding from the Big Lottery.

Our main aim is to provide good quality, refurbished furniture and goods for vulnerable people and low income families in Cardiff.

We also provide volunteering opportunities for members of the local community. Young and vulnerable people are able to improve their skills by getting involved in upcycling and renovating the household furniture that has been donated.
