Bristol Hub has teamed up with the SOFA project



Bristol Hub has teamed up with the SOFA project to run the Social Innovation Programme. For five weeks, a team of dedicated University of Bristol students will work alongside SOFA as consultants, volunteering their time, research skills and creativity to overcome a challenge SOFA has been facing.

The four-person team is working to analyse how best SOFA can advertise itself & devise a smart, imaginative & cost effective marketing strategy. The team will try to establish how to best connect with SOFA’s target audience and devise news ways in which to tap into those groups. The team are currently looking at ways to diversify SOFA’s social media presence and maximize its impact, as well as looking into more traditional marketing methods also.

We provided the furniture for the new BBC show Springwatch with Nick Baker.


"Hi Steve,

I am emailing you to thank you very much for lending us such brilliant furniture for our new Springwatch in the afternoon show with Nick Baker.

The set looked fabulous in the studio and I hope you were as excited as us to see it on TV.

Thanks again,

Best wishes,

Many people still think that we just sell old sofas!


THE extraordinary success of the Olympic Games this summer has confirmed the pride we all share in belonging to a successful multi-racial society. Nothing can undermine this justified reaction and long may the feel-good factor continue but it is a sobering thought that we are still a long way from being a fair and equal society in economic terms.


Whilst we await with interest the outcome of the latest government review of the welfare system it would be foolishly optimistic to anticipate any reduction in the number of people in need of the safety net the state provides. Read More...

A huge THANK YOU TO BRISTOL SOFA PROJECT for transporting the Trampoline which was donated by St.Brendans' Sixth Form college to me from the college to the venue where it can be kept until it will be auctioned to raise funds for the Autism Research Trust, The British Gymnastics Team GB disability Trampoline squad and Axis Trampoline Club in March 2014!

I cannot tell you how helpful this has all been in the wake of this very unexpected event


"Just a quick note to thank you very much for contacting the SOFA Project to help with my appliances after the flood.

They have done a really good job!

The guys in the Repair workshop very helpfully arranged to have the other goods collected, cleaned, repaired and/or replaced. Luckily the drier is also working and they have completely replaced the washing machine!

In addition, I wanted to mention that everyone from the team that came here was very cheerful, polite and professional. I cannot tell you how helpful this has all been in the wake of this very unexpected event and I hope that you will be able to pass on my very grateful thanks to your colleagues and to everyone at SOFA.

Thank you very much again for arranging everything. It is much appreciated"





I am genuinely proud of having furnished an office to such a standard


Camelot Property Management" I was lucky to have from you a complete office suite of furniture well within my budget. I have since been back and have just purchased a white board. Each and every time I pop in I am really impressed by the chaps you have working there – nothing is too much trouble and they are genuinely nice people and it is a very good customer experience.

I am genuinely proud of having furnished an office to such a standard for the amount we paid. "

Tim Maynard Regional manager

 "Would like to say these guys from Silverthorne Lane in Bristol are the tops - they were so kind when I went to look at office equipment today. Thanks guys - you made my day!"
