ReusefulUK has been set up by members of the scrapstore community to support the reuse of unwanted resources for the benefit of children and communities. Clean reusable scrap materials (which businesses find hard to recycle so would otherwise be landfilled) are made available for children to play with through a network of independent 'scrapstores' across the UK.

ReusefulUK is a registered charity in England and Wales (no: 1126044) with trustees who have pledged:

  1. To facilitate the growth and sustainability of scrapstores and resource centres nationally through the provision of a network for advice, information, support and funding for projects that would further their charitable objectives.
  2. To advance the education of the public concerning scrapstores and resource centres through a programme of teaching, training, publishing, exhibitions, seminars and any other means for providing public knowledge and information.
  3. To promote the effectiveness and efficiency of scrapstores, resource centres and other charitable organisations in the community reuse sector by providing best practice principles for initiating, developing and sustaining community reuse projects.
  4. To do all such things as are incidental or conducive to the attainment of the above objectives or any of them.”
