Jigsaw homes partners with the Support and action Women's Network


Jigsaw Homes’ Voids team has partnered up with charitable trust Positive Steps on behalf of SAWN the Support and Action Women’s Network, to find a better home for quality household items left behind in their void properties.

SAWN supports Black African women in Oldham by providing a safe space for them and their families to grow and become more independent through a variety of services, support groups and opportunities.

Jigsaw have donated goods including fridges, ovens, washing machines, kettles and toasters, as well as items of furniture to the charity’s furniture hub, which are then sold on at discounted prices to those in need.

They are supporting local families and the community and helping the carbon footprint by saving good furniture from going to landfill. Jigsaw Homes’ Voids team is also looking to work with The Together Centre in Dukinfield to provide a similar service upcycling furniture to sell in the centre’s charity shop. There are also plans to carry out garden clearances at our properties in Dukinfield and Hyde to help create opportunities for local residents to gain work life experience.
