Equipment Rehoming

Bournemouth CVS can use our extensive voluntary sector networks to redistribute and re-home donations of good condition second-hand equipment.

Once we are contacted by a donor we send out the information about the item offering it to local charities and community groups on a first come first served basis. The organisation claiming the item is responsible for collection. We never send out the contact details of the donors and field all enquiries ourselves. This saves the donors from receiving requests after the item has been claimed.

The items that are most needed are computers and office furniture such as desks and chairs but we have also rehomed filing cabinets, printers, photocopiers, speakers and other standard office furniture along with some more unusual items such as a pool table, cameras, sofas, carpets, paint, a mobility scooter and gardening tools.

Donations come from a mix of businesses, charities and community groups and private individuals.

If you have any items of equipment or furniture you would like to rehome and donate to charity, please call us to discuss on 01202 466130 or email

Due to the high demand for equipment and because we never know when a particular item might become available we don't hold a waiting list of items that a particular organisation might need. Everything is always offered on a first come first served basis.
