Their vision :
We’re not content with teaching repair skills in the community – we want to generate a repair revolution. This means changing the way people use and dispose of resources, encouraging manufacturers to build things to last and to be fixable, and making sure the facilities are in place to allow people to repair and reuse.
"If you have belongings you no longer need, donate them to us instead of throwing them away!
We repair, refurbish, and sell furniture and IT equipment on at affordable prices, or give them to those in need as part of our #RemakeADifference community work. By donating to us you will be helping to prevent items from being thrown into landfill and polluting our environment, and will also be helping the community.
We accept donations from individuals, companies and other charities. Many of the items that are donated to us are damaged and need work done to them before they can be reused, which is what makes us so different to other charity shops; we can accept damaged goods that other charities cannot, rescuing these from being thrown away and ending up in landfill.
If you have an item that we are unable to use or one that is neither IT or furniture related that you want to re-home, you can call the National Reuse Phone Line on: 0800 0665 820 9am-5pm Monday to Friday.
You can also support our project by making a cash donation using the button below. All donations are gratefully received and will go towards increasing our work within the local community to support those in need."
