Need That! aims to cut the amount of waste that Bournemouth and Poole residents throw away. This is achieved by showing them that there are charities, faith groups, schools etc., who could make use of the items.
It was originally run by Poole CVS with funding from the Borough of Poole’s Green Initiative Grants. Additional funding came from the Dorset Community Foundation to enable further promotional work to be carried out with businesses and membership organisations.
At the beginning of March 2014 the project was transferred to Ideas2Action. We are very grateful to the staff and trustees at Poole CVS, the Borough of Poole and Dorset Community Foundation for helping us get the project off the ground and for developing it.
Thanks to funding from the Green Goals Community Fund in Bournemouth, we have been able to develop and expand We Need That to include more Bournemouth organisations. We are also encouraging Bournemouth residents to take part and save their items for groups in the directory.
