North Yorkshire re-use case study

Maximising the social benefits of re-use. 

Social housing partners help grow re-use across York and North Yorkshire.

Working together has helped boost the local re-use market

A successful re-use strategy depends upon a strong market for second hand goods as well as the donation of quality items. To develop demand for second hand items, North Yorkshire County Council recognised that the social housing sector is best placed to understand redistribution needs within the community. As a result, third sector re-use organisations, social housing bodies and local councils worked together to develop a re-use plan to strengthen the re-use market in York and North Yorkshire.
