About Scrapstore

SCRAPSTORE, Swindon is a low cost community resource centre and environmental charity that is home to a multitude of projects dedicated to releasing the untapped potential of all things, people and possibilities.

An Aladdin's cave of materials ready to stimulate your imagination. From crafts to furniture, reclamation to DIY and play - SCRAPSTORE has something for you. 

What We Need

We are interested in any materials or items that can be used in an art, craft, DIY, reclamation or play context. So long as all materials are clean, safe and suitable all it takes is a call to confirm and we are more than capable of taking large quantities off your hands €“ even clearing whole offices and stockpiles!

The more colourful and unusual the better, particularly with regard to paper, fabrics and plastics. If you can deliver, great! If not, call and we will arrange a convenient collection. Do something amazing today and get in touch. 


We are open to any member of the general public and support schools, community groups, child-minders, nurseries, colleges, students, youth groups, after-school clubs, crafters, art and drama groups, to name only a few. Our aim is to provide access for all to low cost creative materials, inspiration and resources. Whoever you are there will be a SCRAPSTORE for you.


Our Partners & Supporters

We have been establishing partnerships since our foundation in 1985 and the longevity and strength of these relationships is testimony to our belief in win-win relationships. So many of the SCRAPSTORE Project's from RePaint to Resources are reliant upon the patronage of major household brands and companies whom we are ever proud to be associated with.

For us, reuse and repurposing is about the creation of value, ensuring accessibility and abundance of resources and overall in the preservation of quality. Because we believe that things can always be better when people work together.

In addition to these suppliers and household brands as our supporters we must mention also our inspirational and amazing backers who supply the funding, support and financial capital to get many of our newer projects off the ground. These foundations, trusts and local businesses are the silent heroes behind our good works and without them our communities would be a poorer place, in every possible way.

SCRAPSTORE, Swindon does everything it can to ensure fiscal sustainability and self-reliance though occasional financial investment is invaluable in growing, evolving and ever improving our projects, facilities and our service to the community. Find out a little more About Us.
