St Vincent's furniture store is a Community Support Project of the St Vincent de Paul Society (England & Wales) that has been operating in the Sheffield area since 1987. We collect, then redistribute recycled furniture and household items to people who are disadvantaged due to poverty, deprivation and circumstance. We do this free of charge, regardless of faith, belief, gender, age, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation or marital status.

The health and safety of our customers and staff is paramount. Our two-man delivery teams have been trained to make collections and deliveries safely with the recommended personal protective equipment and hand sanitiser. Where possible we will collect from your doorstep or from a room of choice. In order to protect the safety of our van crews and admin team, we are unable to collect items from a household which has a member with Covid-19 symptoms, is self-isolating or has tested positive within the last 14 days.
“On a personal note, I would like to say thank you to everyone at St Vincent's. The difference you make to families is huge. Your service is invaluable especially during the last year and the difficulties we have all faced."
The furniture from St Vincent's Sheffield has made a huge difference to four asylum seekers who are living in our new house in Crookes. All four of them had previously been homeless and relying on sleeping either at our emergency night shelter or sofa surfing with friends.
The delivered furniture has allowed our charity to equip our new house and provide them with a safe and comfortable place of their own. Some of them have reported that they have slept properly for the first time in months and that they are already feeling more optimistic for the future, not having to manage their day-to-day living on the streets.
- Assist Agency
My client had one leg amputated and couldn’t leave hospital as he previously lived in a caravan which was unsuitable for wheelchair access and had little furniture. The furniture from St Vincent’s Sheffield was part of a package of support which enabled him to leave hospital sooner, when he was found an accessible bungalow by the council. The bookcase provided gave him somewhere to store computer games and his personal items which have made his bungalow feel more like home, which was very important following the life changing surgery he had been through and experiencing depression. St Vincent's also provided essential bedding and kitchen items without which he would have struggled to afford this.
