Our Social Enterprise, CIC or charity partners are very special people in our world; they are helping those in society who need a little extra support by teaching upcycling as a skill for work and for life. Our Soc Ent Partner organisations help people to get back on their feed again, to have more confidence, offer them understanding and companionship and teach them skills to help them take their place within the community, The House of Upcycling supports our Soc Ent members in any way we can from retweeting their work on social media to spreading the word amongst our community.

Upcycled World run fun and creative upcycling classes, workshops and demonstrations for members of the public and organisations across Scotland. A not-for-profit Community Interest Company, Upcycled World use creative reuse to provide people with positive creative experiences whilst learning about sustainability as well as the skills, knowledge and confidence to upcycle items successfully. They also teach people about conserving the planet's resources and reducing their carbon footprint through creative reuse. Classes open the world of upcycling up to all and taking part in Upcycled World workshops is also a great way for people to connect and increase their confidence as well as giving them time out from their routines and an opportunity to benefit from all that creativity offers. Upcycled World also makes creative reuse video tutorials which they share on their website together with other upcycling video tutorials from outside providers. Founder Caroline Malcolm is currently on a sabbatical, travelling the world learning more about how other communities are using upcycling within their communities.

Professional upcycler Lyn Hamilton was so inspired by the module she studied at the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSES) that she upcycled her upcycling business into Wee Red Upcycles CIC, a Community Interest Company (not for profit) who specialise in teaching valuable transferable skills in repair, re-design and furniture upcycling to vulnerable adults and young people. Workshops with Wee Red Upcycles build confidence, self esteem and break down barriers to help people to reach their full potential through the creative process. All the while, WRU aim to reduce social isolation and mental health issues and to tackle inequalities and improve employability skills. Wee Red Upcycles also host a variety of workshops for third sector and private organisations, corporate team days, children's' workshops and parties. And as you would imagine, Wee Red Upcycles are passionate about the environment and how we can all learn to live a more sustainable life. They aim to inspire people to be less wasteful and always use items diverted from landfill as training materials in their workshops and training programmes.
