Scrapstores are a fantastic resource for community groups who are in need of high quality art and craft materials for their members. The range of materials in your scrapstore changes from day to day and could include card, paper, textiles, paint, corks, wool, cardboard tubes, netting, gauze and a thousand other things!
All scrapstores have different means of accessing their scrap materials. In some you need to pay an individual membership fee, at others you simply pay for the scrap you take on the day. Many scrapstores also have shops open to the public selling high quality art and craft materials from glue to paintbrushes to complement the scrap.
As many as 80,000 community groups are already benefitting from the exciting and varied resources offered by their local scrapstore.
Examples of some the groups are:
- Children’s centres
- Early years settings
- Registered Childminders
- Out-of-school clubs

- Respite Carers
- Arts and Crafts Clubs
- Mainstream and Specialist Educators
