Our partners

FRP is committed to taking a collaborative approach to achieving our aims and objectives and realising our vision. We work in close partnership with others, including:

  • Hornbeam community café and environment centre provides a base for local food and environmental education projects, and a space for people to find out what’s going on locally and how to get involved
  • The HEET Project tackles fuel poverty and promotes energy conservation
  • OrganicLea is a workers’ co-operative which grows and distributes organic vegetables, fruit and herbs, trains people to grow their own, and brings people together to take action towards a more just and sustainable food system
  • Shed Homewares E17 is an upcycling venture created by former FRP volunteer Carla Rossiter.  Upcycled, vintage & secondhand furniture & homewares
  • ThinkFound established by East London based duo; Chris and Jessie who scour the streets, foraging for unwanted, discarded materials; transforming waste into beautiful and functional pieces for the home.
  • Growing Resilient and Energy Efficient Neighbourhoods (GREEN) is designed to raise money for local initiatives through issuing community shares; FRP is one of its founding members
  • We are a member of London Community Resource Network and work in partnership with London Re-use Limited, playing an active role in developing the London Re-use Network.
  • We work with local authorities, in particular the London Borough of Waltham Forest, and registered providers of social housing, including Ascham Homes, developing joint approaches around shared objectives to engage communities, reduce waste, tackle climate change and enhance social inclusion.

Our partnership work will seek to realise the potential for social enterprise and community activism to address local environmental and social issues, as well as create income opportunities for FRP.

In Waltham Forest and surrounding boroughs, this will take the form of a geographically focused but broad-based approach with voluntary and community organisations, and public sector agencies.

Regionally, across London, we will focus on partnerships to deliver re-use activities.We work with a wide range of organisations in London and beyond and are always looking to form new partnerships.
