Welcome to: Furniture Reclamation and Delivery Enterprise
FRADE has it's roots in the early 80's and 90's as the faith communities of Stockton on Tees response to change in welfare benefit legislation which saw the introduction of crisis loans and Community Care Grants.
It became apparent that the new system was having a detrimental effect on those in genuine need who were struggling to fund basic furniture when they moved into new tenancies.
FRADE mobilised the generosity of the local community to donate their surplus furniture which was then supplied at a minimal cost to households referred by welfare organisations.
We now have three shops (Stockton, Darlington & Middlesbrough) which sell the goods to the general public and offer discounts through the FRADEcard to selected groups of people.
