The Furniture Makers’ Company, the City of London livery company and charity for the furnishings industry, has surpassed its target of getting 100 companies signed up to its One Step at a Time campaign. Following an appearance at the January Furniture Show, the charity saw the total of participating companies increase from just over 70 to 101, taking it past its participant target three months early.

The campaign, which launched in May 2019, has been challenging companies in the furnishing sector to sign up for free as a One Step Champion and commit to communicating the organisation’s occupational welfare support to employees, so every industry colleague knows where to turn in times of financial need.

Dids Macdonald OBE, Master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, said: “I’m absolutely blown away by the response to our One Step at a Time campaign. We want to thank the January Furniture Show for giving us a platform to spread a simple message that as the industry’s charity, we are here for everyone in our amazing sector if times are tough.

“Securing 100 One Step Champions is just the beginning, though, and the campaign will continue until everyone in the industry knows we can support them in hard times.”
