Supporting Scrapstore

With pressure mounting on businesses to reduce waste and dispose of their surplus responsibly, our supply chain is a win-win from top to bottom. The Scrapstore actively assists businesses by collecting their safe, surplus materials to be stored and distributed through our Resource Warehouse.

Scrapstore Charity Structure

Scrapstore employs five part-time members of staff to oversee the day-to-day running of our projects and to help supervise our 20 part-time volunteers. At the head of the project is Olivia McCann who has previously won a 'Pride of Swindon' Award and has led the operation for the past 20 years.

It is our member demand that is ultimately responsible for the evolution and direction of Scrapstore with developments governed by our constitution and managed by our Management Committee volunteers.


In addition our trustees provide the strategic vision for the organisation and offer their expertise in guiding the project forward. Currently these members are; Trevor Smith (Chairperson), Simon Cheney (Treasurer), Joanna CM Hartl (Secretary) and Sarah Connell (Committee Member).
