SCRAPSTORE, Swindon is a low cost community resource centre and environmental charity that is home to a multitude of projects dedicated to releasing the untapped potential of all things, people and possibilities.

An Aladdin’s cave of materials ready to stimulate your imagination. From Crafts to Furniture, Reclamations to DIY and Play – The SCRAPSTORE, Swindon has something for you.

Visited as often by members of the general public as schools, community groups, child-minders, nurseries, colleges, students, youth groups, after school clubs, crafters, art and drama groups. We believe access to low cost creative materials and DIY resources should not be exclusive – its as simple as coming along.

A community of people united by the ambition to think creatively, live richly and think outside of the box.

SUPPORTING SCRAPSTORE
