Join our Reuse network

With many people wishing to live a more sustainable life, there’s been an increase in voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations working to waste less and reuse, repair and recycle more.

Responding to this need, and listening to the organisations we work with, we’ve set up a Reuse network to bring together VCSE organisations interested in reuse.

If your organisation is interested in reusing items such as furniture and household goods, clothing, IT equipment, food and bicycles, the network can help.

To join the network, sign up to our next meeting to:

  • give items a new lease of life
  • help alleviate poverty
  • reduce waste
  • tackle climate change
  • find out about funding and partnership working
Upcoming Network meetings

We’ll let you know when the next meeting is.
