Free curtains

Free curtains Wellington Curtain Bank

Do you have a cold home and a Community Services Card? Wellington Curtain Bank can help.

We offer families who have a Community Services Card free, lined curtains for their 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.

If you would like to donate your preloved curtains, please read this page for more info.
