What is Freefor?

Freefor was founded in 2011, Freefor specialises in free items with no catches. If you have something at home or at work you no longer need, you can offer it here, completely free of charge.  Similarly, if you need something you can ask for it here too. Everything offered on the Freefor website must be free – it’s a simple rule, and one we are all glad of in today’s economic climate. We do not always have money to buy something so why not ask for it free or we have something we do not need and want to get rid of it, why throw it into a landfill when there is still use in it. Give it away on here and help someone locally and give it a new lease of life. All too often I have been driving along and see furniture, electrical items outside peoples homes and know some of those items are still in a workable condition and could be reused. Think back to when you first started in life with your first home, What did you have to furnish your house? Think of people who have had their own disasters at home like fire or theft. Also think of natural disasters like flooding, tornados and other weather related issues, How do these people cope if they are left with nothing? Freefor allows you to help locally and help a friend. Let your friends know all about us and what we do, you never know you may need Freefor at some point yourself.

The Growth of Freefor

Originally set up on Facebook in 2011, you can still find Freefor there. When Freefor was formed we had no idea how big a response we would receive. The idea began with one Freefor Facebook page covering Glasgow and Edinburgh and progressed to include pages dedicated to places all over the world. Having so many Facebook groups is not an easy task to do but it is possible! These range right around the world including The United Kingdom, Ireland, The United States Of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand. South Africa and Gibraltar – and are broken down into provinces, states, regions, cities and towns. Some areas are larger than others and some pages are so much busier than other areas but this can change if we all share the Freefor feeling. Most of these pages have been closed down so we can concentrate on helping people the majority of people who need it most. If you can share it shows you care.

The Freefor Idea!

How Freefor works is simple: Freefor was started when I had some things I no longer needed after my daughter moved into her own house. It seemed wasteful to simply bin these items as they still had a great deal of life in them and were definitely not ready for the scrap heap yet. I considered my options – I could sell the items, I could give them to a charity or I could give them away free.  I didn’t like the idea of selling these items as I had not paid for them and would therefore have felt guilty at making a profit from someone elses generosity. I did call a couple of charity shops and they said I would need to deliver them to their depots but their schedule did not match mine. So Freefor was born! I set up the Freefor pages and before long people were coming to offer their services, or to search for something they were looking for. I did feel restricted on Facebook, however, and decided to build this site to further extend the good work of Freefor.

Freefor Events

Freefor is for the people and run by the people. We at Freefor always like to have fun and enjoy ourselves.  We held a Freefor Fun Day which took place in Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow on the 9th June 2012. We managed to feed everyone who came along on the day and entertain them all free of charge. Donations were given by whoever wanted to give, we managed to raise just over £300 for various charities. We aim to do it all again in the future and make it an annual event but aim to make it even bigger and better.

If you ever need to ask a question either drop me an email to or get me on Facebook

Please let as many friends know all about Freefor, the difference is we don’t charge commission like all the other pages out there and don’t buy or sell so even if you are stuck for cash you can always get a bargain here. We are looking to do more in the future to help people wherever and whenever we can. If you have any ideas how we can do this please let me know and if it is within my power I will do it. The more people we have on our site the more people we can help, please share the link, let your friends know all about us by word of mouth, email or whatever way you can.

How many times have you went down the street during trash collection day and see for example furniture being put into the back of a trash compactor by the refuse collection guys and think, that piece of furniture looks good so why is it being thrown away. This is the sort of thing we would like to cut down on. So no matter who you are if you are looking for an item or looking to offer an item you will be welcome at I thank you for reading and hope you can help.
