I am trying to open up a second hand furniture shop for the care leavers under Blackburn and Darwen the shop will be open to all but it will be first come first serve for care leavers as a young person leaves care between the age of 16-18 and become independent they get a budget of £2000 which doesn't seem to bad until you realise it's until there 25 and it highly unlikely for a young person to stay in the same house with the same furniture for over five years which means the budgets run out and there left with no help as a small borough there isnt a lot of money in the budget anyway without wiggle room a young person moves every day and there furniture just gets given away or binned because there is no storage or transport so I would like to open a second hand shop for when they need some sort of furniture clothes etc or if there leaving there furniture can get collected and brought to the shop for the next young person in need all furniture will be extremely cheap if not free to care leavers or young people in need
