The Furniture Makers’ Company has launched its 2018 welfare campaign and unveiled its new charity poster to appeal to the sector to “help spread the word that the charity can support industry workers past and present if they have fallen on hard times”.

The charity is calling on employers within the industry to display the A3 poster – which includes the message ‘We can help you’ – in offices, factories and other designated staff areas to get behind the initiative.

“The furnishing industry employs around 250,000 people across manufacturing, retail, design and teaching, and in every sector from home, office and garden furniture, fabrics, carpets, flooring, and lighting, to wall coverings, kitchens, bathrooms, and interior design,” said CEO Jonny Westbrooke. “And from time to time, someone will need financial assistance or advice.

“We have been supporting people working in the UK furnishing industry for more than 100 years but new people join every month. We want everyone in the industry to know that we are there for them if they fall on hard times.”

Westbrooke added: “In order to achieve this, we need businesses large and small to support us to communicate this message to their employees by displaying the poster on factory floors, break rooms, back offices – anywhere that an employee will be able to see it and as a result know where to turn to for help.”
