Lineage information about this project or dataset
The project was built upon the experience of the Rediscovery Centre as the umbrella organisation for 4 reuse social enterprises. The centre's experience, spanning over 10 years, has identified some good practice procedures which have been transferable across the organisation and highlighted the benefit of protocols and policies for increasing competitiveness ad operational efficiencies. In networking with other reuse orgnsations in Ireland, the value of developing a set of protocols for reuse was identified and the project objectives agreed.
