What are the main objectives of your organisation?
- Provide opportunities to anyone who needs one and approaches us
- Give everyone the best possible training, volunteering and support experience
- Divert waste from landfill
What is unique about your organisation?
We offer opportunities to anyone who needs one and asks for one- we are not limited to a specific set of target beneficiaries We are always looking for new, innovative ways to meet our objectives.
What were the biggest challenges you had to face?
We've faced many of the same challenges as other organisations- trading conditions have been tough, and there are always challenges in finding and retaining enough volunteers to do all the things we want to do.
What are your biggest achievements to date?
We are really proud to be delivering the bulky-waste contract for our local authority area- it has massively increased the volume of waste we divert from landfil, provides lots of new opportunities for us to support our community and keeps us on our toes thinking of new ways of up-cycling, recycling and deconstructing the things we collect.
How do you think you have contributed to the development of the sector?
We're always there when there is a new idea, a new opportunity of a new challenge- we love to be right at the forefront of innovation.
What are your future goals?
More, more, more. As times get tougher the need is greater.
How has the FRN helped your organisation?
Sharing knowledge, contacts and opportunities is key to how we operate, we really enjoy being part of an inspiring, inspired and like-minded community.
