NuLife Furniture is part of Cadwyn Housing Association, so our background is firmly in social housing and supported accommodation.  This project was set up as a response to the amount of people who were being housed without any furniture. We started small by taking donations from the public and moving beds, cookers and fridges between properties in the back of our cars, so that the tenants we were working with could have the best possible start in their new homes.

Over time NuLife has grown thanks to big ambitions, and generous funding from Big Lottery, Comic Relief, Cardiff Council and Cadwyn Housing Association.

Through all the changes and growth we still pride ourselves most on two things, giving our volunteers a meaningful and life changing place to work and furnishing homes affordably for the people who need it most.
