Community RePaint Scheme

Launched in February 2003 the scheme provides a means of distributing surplus paint for use by disadvantaged people, charities, voluntary and community groups.  Whilst paint is free for referred clients we do ask for a small donation from community groups.  We currently have a large selection of paint available. Paint can be viewed and collected by appointment.

Referrals can be made by many statutory and voluntary organisations who know the situation of the indiviudal / family they would like to refer.

Further information can be obtained by telephoning SCRATCH on 023 8077 3132

Please note that we are unable to accept or collect paint from individuals.

Below are some of the comments we have recevied about this project:

“Thank you so much for the paint for Shirley.  She has been very down and worried about the prospect of eviction if she does not get her home decorated.  Your support has made a huge difference to her this week and has taken a big weight off her shoulders”.

“On behalf of all staff and residents at West View House, I would like to thank you for your generous donation of paint you gave us to paint the hostel.  Your donation was very kind and we are very grateful to you".

"Your staff where so helpful and resourceful and we are very impressed with how your scheme is run.”  

Children and staff at the BOSCAS Club (an out of school child care service) can be seen decorating their room.
