The Phoenix Resource Centre

We are an environmental charity run by 4 unpaid trustees and a host of invaluable volunteers. Our purpose is the promotion and practice of re-use, recycling, and waste reduction. We do this in a variety of ways including education and workshops, outreach projects and events, but the main way is via our resource center. Here we take in and collect surplus, unwanted and damaged stocks, clean waste (i. E. Fabric and card off-cuts), and other unwanted items from industry – all of which would normally end up in a landfill site. We then sort the items and place into our warehouse for redistribution to our members. We repair any damaged items that can be, those that can’t are broken down into the core components and then recycled. We currently have a 99. 9% recycle rate and are helping several companies towards carbon neutrality.

The majority of the items available to members are used in craft activities, fundraising or education. Our members include hospitals, other charities, (these include charitable groups that help special needs / mental health / elderly / infirm / impoverished and low achiever groups) uniformed youth groups, (including the Scouts, Guides and Brigades) schools, nurseries and other children’s / youth groups. Many of these groups are under-funded, so we are able to provide them with much needed resources. This has enabled a lot of groups to provide education and learning through creative play, when they would have otherwise been unable to.
