Newground ReUse

The ReUse centre, based on Pickup Street, Blackburn, sells new, pre-owned and pre-loved goods at low prices to help people make their house a home.

Newground ReUse sells everything from furniture, electrical items, beds, new mattresses, carpet tiles, a range of white goods and swatches of fabric to help furnish peoples’ homes on a budget.

But that’s not all. Volunteers and apprentices will be able to work alongside mentors to teach them work skills that could lead to further employment opportunities.
