ZWS grants for reuse training

Zero Waste Scotland (ZWS) will offer grants of up to £1,800 to support third sector organisations training staff in repair and upcycling skills.

ZWS research found a shortage of skills could be preventing reuse organisations from growing their businesses.

The fund aims to helping workers to gain skills in for four types of common items: WEEE, furniture, bicycles and textiles. Grants are available to cover the costs of tuition, travel and subsistence, and any materials or equipment needed for the course.
