About Us At GG, we  connect pre-loved furniture and whitegoods with trauma survivors. This simple act greatly reduces their risk of homelessness and empowers people towards self-determination and a brighter future in the knowledge that they are supported by their community. We collect key household items from kind-hearted donors to help set up a warm, safe home base from which trauma survivors have the power to rebuild their lives. Our recipients include people who have left their homes due to family violence, those seeking asylum, and young adults moving on from foster care and out-of-home care services. The items we supply are those typically too expensive, heavy and complicated for our recipients to source themselves — such as beds, fridges, washing machines, sofas, TVs, chests of drawers, tables, chairs and microwaves.
