The Floordrobe!

Furniture Re-use Network members Richmond Furniture Scheme has come up with the next big thing in the upcycling world - the Floordrobe!

"In the UK and Ireland, we're at the beginning of this journey, but the way that we've started is by working across our stores with the Furniture Re-use Network."

And the Furniture Re-use Network (FRN) didn't quite conquer the category we were shortlisted for, but those of our members who were also up for an award absolutely stormed it!

Even though it is a time of uncertainty for us all, it would be remiss of us not to make some comment about this truly monumental decision, we’ve gathered some opinions and added a few of our own.

Telling your Story

Getting to know you. Getting to know all about you...

Recently we've been going on a lot about the importance of you telling your organisation's story, creating a case study on an individual you have helped, getting your message out there, letting your your communities know the impact you have and what you do. But we know it can be an arduous and time consuming task, especially when you don't have time. So when Andy from Doncaster Refurnish sent through this collection of photographs taken by their photographer Graeme Oxby, I thought it would be a fantastic example of story-telling to share.

Today (Friday 24th June) has been deemed National Upcycling Day by Gumtree who are eager to encourage the sharing, re-use and upcycling of furniture and other items. But for the Furniture Re-use Network members upcycing means so much more than a fun project to embark upon.

Telling your Story with Case Studies

Case Studies is such a dreary title isn't it? It sounds like a very technical document that could be the answer to insomnia... Which is the exact opposite to what it really is.

January Sales - Salvation for Flood Victims?

It’s 4 days since the Christmas floods hit Salford.

The River Irwell burst its banks, creating a beach of mud in some parts of the city, and leaving a four inch layer of it in over 400 nearby residential properties in Lower Broughton.

You couldn’t find a mop or cleaning materials for love nor money in Salford yesterday. Today, donations are flooding in (excuse the awful pun). Much of the mud outside has now gone, but there’s an odd brown/grey covering on everything from the ground up to about a foot high on walls, railings, houses and cars.

Re-use: Challenges and Ambitions

Bulky waste and re-use received some well-deserved airtime or rather, online time, via Lets Recycle’s webinar yesterday (9th Dec 2015) titled `Reuse: Challenges and Ambitions’.

The presentations raised some important issues and recommendations concerning bulky waste collection, reuse, disposal and the involvement of the third sector. But very little of the presented content about what local authorities can do was particularly new - FRN has been creating guidance, facilitating negotiations between local authorities, waste management companies and re-use organisations, and leading our sector for over 10 years in this particular area of re-use and bulky waste management.

FRN Comment on the Autumn Statement

The devil, as they say, is in the detail, and there will be much scrutiny of policy behind the Chancellor’s headline statements in today’s Autumn Statement.

There are a number of policy areas and departmental budget cuts which affect the charitable reuse sector, such as employment; business, innovation and skills, the environment, and we’ll have a much better understanding of the facts in coming days.

However, two key announcements stand out for the reuse sector this afternoon.
