About Us

Bright Sparks is a Re-use and Repair project

Why do we do what we do?

At Bright Sparks we work with local authorities and social landlords in North London to divert unwanted reusable household items (furniture, small electricals, bric-a-brac and crockery) from landfill.  Through this activity we provide jobs for local people, volunteering opportunities for individuals looking to get back into work and purposeful activities for socially excluded individuals.  All the reusable items are cleaned, tested, repaired if needed and distributed to local people through our outlets  (Islington – 176 Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park, N7 7PX and Waltham Forest – 842-844 High Road Leyton, E10 6AE)

Here’s a video one of our volunteers made:

Who makes this possible?

There are a few organisations involved in the creation and facilitation of Bright Sparks.
