A social justice enterprise…

ScrapAntics is a community interest company founded by Sandy Greene and Siobhan Morison in 2016. Since then we have grown to become a team of currently 22 staff and volunteers. We have now diverted over 100 tonnes of waste from landfill and incinerator back into the community as resources for play and creative projects!

 

Our core values are community, art, recycling and education. Sustainability and equality are at the heart of everything we do and all our profits are invested back into the community.

 

We are here for everyone, but prioritise working with local people who face challenges through disadvantage. Our aim is to bring the joy and positive impact of imagination, creativity and play to the whole community, and to always put people and planet before profit.

The Team

Community | Art | Recycling | Education

Working with the community 

ScrapAntics invite all members of the community to be involved, whether by attending our sessions, being part of our Community Steering Group or volunteering with us. 

 

The work we do would not be possible without our national funders and partners and the brilliant local organisations we have worked with, which include:

 

Scottish Government, European Union, Dundee City Council, Play Scotland, Inspiring Scotland, National Lottery, Northwood Trust, Foundation Scotland, Corra Foundation, Museums Galleries Scotland, Scottish refugee council, Refugee week , V&A, DIWC, Articulate, DCA, University of Dundee, Abertay University, Queen Margaret University, D&A College, Faith in Community, Barnados, Dundee Libraries, NatureScot, PAMIS and more…

DSEN Awards 2023

We were delighted to be given the Youth Initiative Award at Dundee Social Enterprise Network’s ceremony in November 2023.

There are so many amazing social enterprises in Dundee and we are proud to be part of a city with such strong community support and so many exciting and interesting projects.

Many thanks to all the young people and partners we work with, to DSEN for the recognition and to all our play workers and team for their hard work and fun play!
