Every scrapstore, is independent and usually run by a small committed group of staff, many or all of which are often volunteers.  With scrapstores now busier than ever we need more volunteers to get involved in running and promoting their local scrapstores so we are launching our Scrapstore Reuse Champion recruitment campaign.

What is a Scrapstore Reuse Champion?

A ‘Scrapstore Reuse Champion’ is a volunteer who gives their time, enthusiasm and energy to a help in the running or promotion of a scrapstore.

Scrapstore Reuse Champion’s activities are not just confined to being in a scrapstore and there is no minimum amount of time required.

Promoting or donating to scrapstores are in themselves important ways to be a Scrapstores Reuse Champion.

How to get involved?

  • Sign up your work place to sort and donate scrap resources to your local scrapstore
  • Promote scrapstores through your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media
  • Help us with fundraising for Reuseful UK
  • Be a speaker, promoting your scrapstore to local groups
  • Write a press release or short article to include in local press
  • Recruit more volunteers, especially those interested in art, craft, play or reuse

What’s in it for you, why volunteer?

Scrapstores make an invaluable contribution diverting waste and preventing the needless use of natural resources. As a Scrapstore Reuse Champion you can help protect the environment by educating and supporting other people to waste less.

Whether you’re passionate about play, art or crafts you will have a wonderfully positive creative environment within which to flourish.

If you’re unemployed; volunteering can be a great way to increase or refresh your skills and confidence which could make you more attractive to potential employers.

Scrapstores are friendly lively places with lots going on, particularly when people are enthusing about their forthcoming events or creative inspirations.

Once you are in contact with your local scrapstore you can discuss your potential reuse activities and availability.

Over the coming months we will promoting specific volunteering case studies so do come back and visit us soon.
