The FRC Group runs several commercial businesses that produce profits and in turn, provide social dividends to those living in poverty or without employment through the provision of training opportunities and quality furniture.
Based out of Liverpool, the company operates the Furniture Resource Centre and both Bulky Bob's waste management and Bulky Bob's Furniture World. The combination of these businesses contributes to the company's ability to provide low-income households with furniture and other household necessities that they may otherwise not be able to attain. After collecting household waste --mainly appliances and furniture -- these "pre-loved" items are recycled and sold to those in crisis at an affordable and fair price.
The company also uses a portion of its profits to run a training program for those who have been unable to attain work for a significant amount of time. They are placed within one of the company's businesses and provided with job training and marketable qualifications.
