Staying First, with keen support from Dr Edwards and Bishop Kings Fulham Charity, have opened a re-use furniture store with an advice hub at DEBK's premises, Percy Barton House, 33-35 Dawes Road, Fulham

We will be selling a selection of preloved furniture – some to suit those on a limited budget mingled with a variety of vintage and retro treasures. Staying First is a charity with over 30 years of experience in supporting the west London community. We help people access furniture and also, through the sale of higher value pieces, generate funding for the charity’s work as a whole providing services which allow people to live independent lives

The new advice hub at Dawes Road will support anyone from Fulham who needs help with welfare benefits or debt issues, we are open on Wednesdays and Thursdays and hope to be able to extend these hours in the future. You can drop in and see one of our experienced advisers who will be able to assist and provide ongoing support in resolving complex debt and benefit problems.

We need help on the retail side of our business and also have an ambition to provide a form filling service for the community which would be delivered through volunteers. If you would like to volunteer for us to develop your skills or just to get you out of the house and give something back to the community please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

We aim to become a fixture in the local community and welcome anyone through our doors for a browse, to seek help or just a chat – we do love a chat.

Looking forward to seeing you.
