About The Project

With support from the European Commission's LIFE + Programme, Groundwork London and London Community Resource Network are delivering this ground-breaking project which supports residents to create community reuse enterprises on their housing estates. Redundant spaces are being transformed into reuse hubs for the collection, refurbishment and redistribution of items, equipping local people with the skills and resources to reuse more, reduce fly-tipping and improve the local environment. These community reuse hubs are called The Loops.

The creation of the five Loops is complemented by an in depth community engagement and behaviour change programme to tackle the root causes of fly-tipping and encourage positive environmental action. Additionally, each of the hubs will offer accredited training, employment and volunteering opportunities for residents.

The five Loop hubs are located at:

REPURPOSE is funded by European Commission’s LIFE + Programme and co-financed by Groundwork London, London Community Resource Network, Middlesex University, Peabody, Genesis Housing, Southern Housing Group, LB Islington and LB Hammersmith and Fulham.
