Social Impact Declaration
Social Impact Statements
  • FRAME provides education, training and employment opportunities to people with all disabilities and people who are considered to be socially excluded, to enable them to test their ability to work, develop new skills and change direction in their lives. These opportunities are provided through the operation of a community re-use and recycling project which as well as offering reusable furniture and household items to the general public, targets those experiencing the effects of poverty and social deprivation in Pembrokeshire, providing items at very low cost or free of any charge to individuals or families in crisis.

    The re-use and recycling of unwanted furniture and household goods avoids unnecessary waste and minimises the use of landfill refuse sites.
