Discarded paint can be collected from household waste sites where it would usually just go to landfill or disposal plants, and can be re-used by a variety of different people. The paint can help social services, charitable housing associations, schools and colleges, community centres and organisations, local parks and communal areas.
Decorating projects can find it very difficult to make ends meet, however the appearance of communal areas and centres can have a dramatic effect on the number of people that use and benefit by them.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide training for the long-term unemployed
  • Rejuvenate and decorate local and communal areas
  • Collect and re-use unwanted paint that would otherwise require specialised and expensive disposal
  • Provide a diverse and rich environment for volunteers and placements to gain experience
  • Resupply paint at low cost to communities, services and indiviuals in need.

Why it's a great idea:

This service can make a real difference to communities and individuals in Bradford and the surrounding area, by making paint and decorating services more affordable and accessible.
The scheme works with the long term unemployed, via the job centre, as well as through the NHS Trust, providing volunteer places to those wo have been out of work due to long-term illness. A wide mix of age and backgrounds lets volunteers gain a variety of new experiences and social skills.
Our paint can improve the quality of life for families and communities in need, reduce antisocial behaviour and create community pride and awareness, whilst transforming local areas.

Steps to get it done:

  • Recycle useable paint
  • Collect paint from household waste sites
