We have funding!

We’re pleased to announce that the Rebuild Site CIC has received funding from both the Cumbria County Council and Carlisle City Council to support the opening of our Rebuild Shop at Kingmoor Park. The funds will go towards a variety of items that will help us to operate safely and make sure all our stock is organised effectively.

Commenting on the award Councillor Cyril Weber said:

“I am delighted that Carlisle Local Committee have granted £5,000 towards this important local community organisation.  The work Rebuild CIC are doing in the city to change perceptions about the better use of materials, reclaimed materials and downcycling is helping to reduce the amount of items sent to landfill or waste services.  Their efforts to make building materials more affordable and accessible to local people is also a great way to support the local economy, as well as our residents and communities. On behalf of the council, I wish the organisation all the best for their plans in 2022.”

Rebuild Site Director Emma Porter added: “We are thrilled to have received this support thanks to Cumbria County Council and Carlisle City Council, and are confident the Rebuild Site will contribute to the County’s net zero targets whilst bringing about systematic change in the Construction industry.”
