Coronavirus Update

During the pandemic the premises that we had been using to run SCARF, kindly supported and provided by Wolverhampton College, became inaccessible in accordance with Government Guidelines and its approach to Covid 19.

Whilst this was happening Wolverhampton College underwent a series of changes, which included some external departments being brought onto the main site, where SCARF was positioned.

Wolverhampton College has, again, kindly provided alternate premises for SCARF but it is going to take some time for us to work out the logistics of this new location as well as reconfigure our stock and fittings to make this work.

With SCARF being a Community Interest Company that relies on volunteers and external support we cannot envisage a return to opening the shop until after the summer holidays at this point.

We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate the support and enquiries and will be back as soon as possible. Please do check the website and facebook because if things move faster then we will update here.

Thanks again.

Gallery of Examples

Here you will find a collection of pictures that tell a little bit of the story of what happens with our materials when they get back out into the world.

In here there be monsters, magic, fairies, toys, puppets, models and costumes – there's some workshops and may be more than one or two people having fun!

Consider Donating?

We need your rubbish! Okay, not all of your rubbish but a lot of those items that it just seems a shame to throw away and see end up in landfill.

If your business or company has waste materials or paint, then we may be able to help you by you helping us!
