Remakery Brixton Limited
The Remakery, founded in 2013, is a hub that provides people in the community, particularly those who are disadvantaged, with opportunities for enterprise, education, creativity and interaction. All of its activities are focused on the re-use of waste materials destined for landfill or incineration. At the heart of its offering is its space: a 1000m2 Brixton garage block once used by squatters and drug users that has been brought back to life by some 400 volunteers through the re-use of waste materials such as broken tiles, scaffolding poles, pianos and even gym flooring. Funding from The Fore allowed The Remakery to hire its first paid staff member, which will enable the organisation to expand its opening hours and increase its number of paid-for memberships and rental hires, thus dramatically increasing its trading income and long-term financial sustainability.
