CEA Curtain Bank

The CEA Curtain Bank takes donated curtains and adjusts and lines them to fit your window measurements. Curtains are provided at no charge to all those who cannot afford new ones.

 

Good quality, lined curtains that fit your windows well are an essential part of a warm, energy efficient home. It can be a struggle to find affordable curtains of a good quality.  If your curtains are thin, single layered, torn, or poorly fitting, and you cannot afford new ones, contact us today.

 

The Curtain Bank is a free service. However, our Curtain Bank is not fully funded and relies of further donations to keep going for future clients. We would like to encourage all those using the Curtain Bank to give to your ability. If you are experiencing serious financial hardship, we do not want any donation and will be honoured to be able to help you. Donations can be made in cash to our donation box at the Curtain Bank or through our Givealittle page. We are grateful for all donations big and small.

 

We can also provide curtains for landlords for their rental properties. We would like to encourage landlords to donate 415 per curtain set.

 

CEA Mobile curtain bank

CEA Curtain Bank offers a mobile service to enable us to reach those within the community who cannot travel into the Curtain Bank itself. If you are elderly, have a medical condition, or cannot access transport easily, please contact us about this service.

 

How to apply for curtains:

Although we are in Alert Level 1, the Curtain Bank has a substantial backlog to clear due to the lockdown. To help as many customers as we can to get curtains, we will choose curtains for customers based on measurements and preferences. Please be patient, it may be some time before we can get to you.  We have over a thousand curtain sets on our shelves so there are enough curtains for all households who need them. To apply: 

  1. Fill in the online measurement form, or download and print it here 
  2. Make sure that under 'comments' at the bottom of the form you list colours, patterns, etc you would prefer.
  3. Send/email/post the form to us.
  4. We will choose curtains for you based on the measurements and your preferences.
  5. We will contact you when they are ready for pick-up from our reception during opening hours.

Donation bin locations

 

We appreciate your donations of curtains. At the moment we are overstocked with some types of curtains and due to a lack of storage space, we can only take curtains which:

  • Are longer than 1.80m
  • Are absolutely free of mould
  • Are not faded

Check the map for your nearest donation bin, or see the full list below.
