CRNI is delighted to work with the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) to set up a pilot reuse and repair network for Northern Ireland. The pilot will see a dedicated staff member which we are hiring for now (see job posting here and apply by 19 June), establish a Northern Ireland membership base and tailored member offerings, engage with key stakeholders and develop key policy recommendations. The pilot builds on our recent feasibility study here that found 77% of reuse and repair operators interviewed felt a network would be extremely or very valuable. The pilot will run through March 2021.
