FRP is a not-for-profit, social enterprise with environmental and social aims. We engage with organisations and communities in London through a range of practical initiatives to reduce, re-use and recycle waste. Any financial surpluses are principally re-invested for that purpose, in the business or in the community. Based in Walthamstow in East London, we have been in operation since 1989. All our work and activities are supported by volunteers, including people with mental health problems.
The Paint Place is a core FRP project. It collects surplus, leftover paint from Re-use & Recycling Centres and commercial companies. The paint is then sorted, quality-checked, re-mixed if need be, and sold as a value alternative to new paint, particularly for lower income customers, community groups and not-for-profit organisations.
The Paint Place runs a 12 week programme called PRIME – Learning through Volunteering. It develops participants practical skills, sustainability awareness and enables them to create a portfolio of learning.
For over 20 years, Hackney City Farm has been giving the local community the opportunity to experience farming right in the heart of the city.
