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.
