Economic and financial inclusion services provider Five Lamps has been using the Smarterbuys Essentials service for over a year, providing vulnerable and disadvantaged residents with white goods and furniture.
In 2013-14, more than 300 Smarterbuys items were provided across the Stockton and Northumberland areas.
One Stockton-on-Tees resident, who received new items through the scheme, commented: “I am so grateful for this help getting a new fridge and washing machine. Access to this kind of service has made a massive impact on me getting back my independence.”
Five Lamps Welfare Assistance Manager, Louise Robinson, said: “This is a service which is simple and it works. It provides a service which can really make a difference to the lives of our tenants when an emergency situation occurs. Having used Smarterbuys Essentials for just over a year, we have found the service to be very efficient and effective.
“The process of sending in an application for delivery of the product often takes as little as two working days and our applicants receive a good service with quality items being delivered and fitted efficiently.”
