Support for members

Education and awareness raising

Raising the profile of the sector with a broad range of stakeholders through traditional and other media

Representing the sector at national level

Working with key stakeholders in relation to government policy and decision making around reuse and recycling, social enterprise and green jobs.

Promoting research

Facilitating or conducting research in order to help overcome barriers to reuse

Networking and links

Developing and strengthening links with relevant national and international organisations in order to better convey our message
