Seagulls ReUse

SeagullsSeagulls ReUse received £5,083.40 from the Safer Communities Fund which went towards their "We Grow People" scheme which worked with ex-offenders and referrals from probation as well as other volunteers.

Seagulls is an environmental social enterprise working to promote and develop a community resource centre in Leeds.

Seagulls main activities are:

Seagulls Paint Store - They remix and reuse leftover/unwanted paint. They have a contract with Leeds City Council to collect paint from 8 of their household waste sites. The paint is then sorted, remixed and sold as a cheap / value alternative particularly for local and lower income customers.

Mosaic and creative arts - Artists and volunteers teach and support local community organisations, facilitating the creation of public art.
 
Volunteer Programme - Their many volunteers do a large variety of jobs, many of them hard work and a bit messy. They support them with a friendly, inclusive and supportive atmosphere; where they teach skills, improve confidence, employability.
