Please find out more about the organisations we are partnered with and the fantastic work they do.
Textile Recycling Association
The Textile Recycling Association (TRA) is the UK’s trade association for collectors, sorters, processors and exporters of used clothing and textiles, and aims to promote best practice in the industry.
Clothes Aid is proud to be an associate member of the TRA.
Waste Resources Action Programme (WRAP)
Waste Resources Action Programme (WRAP) are world leaders in helping organisations achieve greater resource efficiency. Their vision is a world in which resources are used sustainably. WRAP works with governments, businesses and communities to deliver practical solutions to improve resource efficiency.
Between 2010 and 2015 in England alone, WRAP initiatives reduced greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 50 million tonnes (Mt), which is equivalent to the annual carbon dioxide emissions of Portugal.
Love Your Clothes
Launched in 2014, the Love Your Clothes campaign has been developed together with industry organisations to help change the way the UK consumers buy, use and dispose of their clothing. The ultimate aim is to reduce the environmental impact of clothing across the UK and influence a more circular approach to clothing globally.
The Love Your Clothes website is packed with handy tips and video tutorials to repair, refresh and increase the lifespan of your wardrobe.
London Community Resource Network
The London Community Resource Network (LCRN) provides pioneering community-based solutions for waste prevention, recycling and re-use across the capital.
As the only organisation of its kind, it acts as London’s leading champion, catalyst and connector, helping grass-roots charities and other organisations to engage with their local communities and involve them in reducing, re-using, recycling and re-distributing resources – for maximum social, economic and environmental benefit.
The Fundraising Regulator is the independent regulator of charitable fundraising in the UK. It was established following the Etherington review of fundraising self-regulation (2015) to strengthen the system of charity regulation and restore public trust in fundraising. The Fundraising Regulator was set up to replace the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB), assuming responsibility for regulating fundraising from July 2016 and will operate the new Fundraising Preference Service once this is developed.
Clothes Aid were members of the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) before it was disbanded, and are committed to register with the Fundraising Regulator once registrations open. We will fully adhere to the Fundraising Regulator’s new codes of conduct.
Institute of Fundraising
The Institute of Fundraising (IoF) is the professional membership body for UK fundraising. We support fundraisers through leadership and representation; best practice and compliance; education and networking; and we champion and promote fundraising as a career choice. Clothes Aid are one of the IoF’s 525 organisational members.
