Come and get free curtains!

September 18, 2018

Come and get free curtains!

Last financial year, we provided the highest number of free, lined curtains ever to families with Community Services Cards. To be exact, we gave 2462 sets of curtains to 604 households! But we want to give out even more this year before our Wellington Curtain Bank closes on 30 November.

Do you have a cold home and a Community Services Card? Our Curtain Bank can help. We make curtains for living rooms. If there are children, older people or people with health issues in the home, we can also make curtains for bedrooms.

Wellington Curtain Bank upcycles good quality curtains donated by the public to fit your windows and help you keep heat in, cold out and power bills down.

It’s easy to get free curtains:

  1. Make an appointment with Wellington Curtain Bank by phoning 0508 78 78 24 x 705 or emailing curtainbank@sustaintrust.org.nz.
  2. Download a window measurement form here, or give us a call and we can post one out to you. If it's easier for you to fill out an online form, go to this page
  3. Fill out the form. Here is a video which shows you how.
  4. Bring the form and your Community Services Card to your appointment.
  5. We’ll call you when your curtains are ready to pick up.

Wellington Curtain Bank is open from March 1 to November 30 each year. We take donations any time, but if you need curtains, please contact us during the open season.

Opening hours when in season are: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am to 4.30pm.
