FREE Furniture and Equipment for Community Groups

by Dayana Del Puerto | 17th Jun 2016

Community and voluntary groups are being given the chance to secure free furniture and equipment via Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s innovative RCT Together approach.

A range of goods which cannot be utilised in other Council facilities following the closure of Blaengwawr Comprehensive School, with pupils moving to the £50m Aberdare Community School development, are on offer.

Items include washing machines, electrical equipment, domestic gas cookers, lockers, pianos, office desks, computer desks, stackable chairs, tables, metal filing cabinets, TVs and Video players.

If you are a community group, voluntary organisation or charity that would like to benefit from the donated items, you can contact the RCT Together team to arrange an appointment to attend the giveaway day on June 16.

Cllr Joy Rosser, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Cabinet Member for Prosperity, Wellbeing and Communities, said:

“This is the third such event that we have held as a result of RCT Together to support voluntary and third sector organisations that do so much to help our communities. 


More and more, we are working with voluntary, charitable and third sector partners to deliver and sustain community services that the Council cannot maintain on its own. 


Nurseries, paddling pools, cultural venues and community hubs are all successful examples of the RCT Together approach.


By offering surplus equipment and furniture, which the Council cannot facilitate elsewhere, to these organisations for free, it means we are supporting their work and helping them to free up funds which can be spent elsewhere.”
