About Us

The Children’s S.C.R.A.P project is a registered charity No. 281010 which collects, stores and distributes clean, safe, industrial waste to schools, nurseries, colleges, special needs groups, churches, hospital wards, playgroups, community groups and charitable organizations involved in education.

The Children’s S.C.R.A.P project was founded in 1978, by our founder Mr Bruce Galley in response to cuts in government spending on education, particularly arts and crafts funding. The charities main objective is to advance education and play by the distribution of donated materials to schools, colleges, playgroups, nurseries, community groups and other charitable organizations established for educational purposes.
